Today I'm sharing 2 poems by Izumi Shikibu, a Japanese poet who lived more than a thousand years ago. You can learn a bit more about her at the Poetry Foundation.
On a shadowed path
I must make my way;
Let it faintly shine,
The moon upon the mountain’s edge.
The feelings in my heart
Soaking are my sleeves.
You can read more of her poems at Waka Poetry.
I do hope you'll take some time to check out all the wonderful poetic things being shared and collected today by Tabatha Yeatts at The Opposite of Indifference. Happy poetry Friday friends.
