Mount Utsu

Mount Utsu
even the old men
had lovers

steep mountain
on the road a cart
loses a wheel

late autumn
a cold wind pushes me
up the mountain

mountain wind
my clothes and my skin
become one

steep mountain
at the top perhaps
two stars

Published today at one of Gabi Greve's blogspots - . Mountains, temples and tea count as favourite haiku topics of mine, perhaps because all three have something to do with the act (art?) of contemplation.

What a wonderful series, Ella!

A great set, Ella. I think "late autumn" is my favorite, but the next time I look, I may choose another.

Keep up the good work.
