Mid-September Aizu

Fall in Aizu

Beginnings of fall at Tsurugajyo

Fall flowers devour late summer’s leaves
Whose husks of rust crinkle beneath our feet
Chilling, the air brings pipping-wood chimneys
Smelling of maple; ’tis never more sweet

Sunsets sing amber – weave weary skyline
Crickets crick haughty with impeccable time
The night air wills sharper, tearing the eyes
Of lovers stolen beneath moonshine

And here I sit, masked behind whisped curtains
Scribbling scrabbles – enjoying the fete
Eyeing the world, unable to explain,
The beauty of fall comes less death abate
