No terrible wind
seeks to demolish my house
but the house of dreams
where a silver moon endures
keeps my small heart moving on


David Brazier


(after Izumi Shikibu:
It is true,
the wind blows terribly here -
but moonlight
also leaks between the roof planks
of this ruined house.)

That is a splendid image, and thank-you so much for the gorgeous Shikibu piece!
