"Forgive and Forget".


Shining moonlit pines
Waving in the winter wind
Covered in the snow.

Light blue scarf of silk.
Secrets hidden within clouds
Looking down at earth.


The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this piece was Yosa Buson's poem. Yosa Buson (1716-1783) was a Japanese poet from the Edo Period. In one of his poems, he presents a picture of a moonlit spring evening. I was inspired to use the same emotions to speak about a moonlit winter evening.
