POEM: Cloud Flow

Posted by in National Geographic Photo Writing Prompts, Poetry, Ten Minutes, Writing

Cloud flow over Tsubetsu-cho Pass
A sea of alpine brushed in light

The vapor rousing
Rising like a ghost from it’s grave

Or restless spirits
caught      in slow exposure

Ukabarenairei–
bodies left to dry like persimmon

The old traditions linger
on the mountainside.
