Plum Flowers

By

That their white perfection is no more than a moment's Masking of mould,

That's all I see in these flowers of the plum.

I am not consoled

Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test?

By the scent or the color or the image of light

They so briefly hold.

Translated from Japanese by Graeme Wilson
