KOMOREBI
I used to be a masquerader,
Happy and free;
Some years my hubby
Put the gold dust on my belly,
And some, in my belly button too
Komorebi;
Hot days, when i never ever felt the sun,
Only the music, surging through
My pores;
Of the steel bands, and the brass bands;
Rhythm and whine.

  1. Oh, gorgeous! Takes the concept to a whole new level.

    (But if you look closely, I think it's 'komorebi' with an 'i' on the end.)
