Poem: Izayoi Waiting

Someone passes by,
I hear the rustle of cloth,
footsteps on the path,
but the moon hides behind clouds
obscuring sight with shadow.

Will the moon reveal
A bright flash of silver hair,
glow of amber eyes,
and the soft touch of warm hand,
or leave me bereft, waiting?

Thank you ma'am!

LOL...Knittingknots-sama, eh?

That made me go look up Knitting in Japanese. It's Keami. One of the Kanji in it refers to doing writing and editing and poetry as well as twisting things together...

I had no idea about that when I picked my handle...there's this weird connection between fiber arts like knitting,braiding, nets and such and writing in Japanese.

Maybe I should change my handle to Keamiko...LOL. Even Amiko would have the same idea, but I'd lose on of my k's! LOL.

Thanks for giving me a big kick this morning!

Of course it's a '-sama'... you're like the Futurama-Sensei, only it's in Poetry. (Cos we ALL know that if you want quality poetry, you go to Knittingknots. xD...)

And the link of knitting to twisty things like poetry and stuff is awesome... xP You'd still be KK to us, even if your handle's different. (Handle? Lol...)

Poetry-sensei! LOL...I do like to put words together, this is true!

Lovely. It does convey the feeling of anticipation that Izayoi
feels when waiting for her lover.

Thanks! That's what I was hoping to catch.

If Izayoi is from the Heian period, it's an interesting thing to consider that marriage customs were matrilinear then...men would come and visit at the woman's house, spending the nights with them as they got closer to the time of commitment...

She would expect Inupapa to come to her, instead of running to him...something to think about...

I thank you, Ma'am! Not often I get inspired to write about Izayoi...

I know, and what a good job you did. ^^

Someone asked me once if I'd consider doing a fic about them (it was a review on KOR) and I said I doubted it, but when I think about it, they must have been so cute. :P

I suspect they were...I sort of suspect that a lot of the underlying nobility and willingness to push to the max comes from Inupapa...Sessh seems to take after Sesshmom somewhat more...but both of them have problems communicating their feelings. I suspect that also comes from Inupapa...

Since they're characters I barely touch, I never really thought about it. Sess taking after his mother is dead on, I think. She seems like a snot, and we all know how Sess behaves!

I'm a compulsive literary analyst...I can't help myself. I do try to hide it, lest someone think I'm strange, but I guess all my friends know that I'm strange anyway....;0)

Ah, Inuyasha's Mama. She had such a sad life, didn't she? But at least she had InuTaisho and InuYasha for a little while. *sigh*

    You might try Nobunaga Concerto where a modern time traveler exchanges places with Nobunaga. Follows Nobuanaga historically
