Izumi Shikibu

I cannot say
which is which:
the glowing
plum blossom is
the spring night's moon.

Neither the coldest
autumn wind
it could hurt me
as this spring storm
dispersing petals.

In my loneliness,
Not to let even the smoke die down
I break twigs
And feed the flames
In this winter mountain home.

When I think of you,
fireflies in the marsh rise
like the soul’s jewels,
lost to eternal longing,
abandoning my body.
