Haibun - Moon-Viewing Terrace

Moon-Viewing Terrace

A young girl, I peer through the lattice
window onto the moon-viewing terrace.

Streams flow over the stillness of rocks.

With no moon, I hear a hushed cry, then,
gentle murmurs surrounded by silence.

light breeze -
a peony drifts
through darkness
