They Wait



A Japanese Death Poem, the Jisei, is written about death in general or about one’s own imminent death. It reflects the poet’s contemplation of his mortality, of what was and what comes next both in the context of self and universe.

They’re waiting for me
a family reunion
on the other side
cherry blossoms withering
a final, waning sunset
