Hazel Eyes (Bussokusekika)

Hazel Eyes

Softly love's wind blows,
as the hazel stars twinkle
blooming silent night.
In submission, aroma
forces the heart and the mind
to drink beauty of his eyes.

** Bussokusekika is a rare form of Japanese poetry that consists of six lines written in a 5-7-5-7-7-7 mora pattern. Arising during the Nara period, the form had essentially died out by the Heian period. For centuries, the only existing examples were the twenty one poems inscribed beside the stone Buddha Foot monument at Yakushi Temple in Nara, Japan, by an unknown author around 753 CE.
