The eyes have it

 Kiyoshi Kobayakawa, Expression of Eyes, 1931

Kiyoshi Kobayakawa, Expression of Eyes, 1931

I used up this body

longing

for one who does not come

A deep valley, now,

what once was my heart

Izumi Shikibu (974-1034)

It seemed the plum trees

were already in bloom

but when I picked a branch

what fell – so much like flowers -

was snow.

Izumi Shikibu (974-1034)
