Though it is winter
An open window

Across the street
On an upper floor balcony
A nineteen year old geisha
Looks up at the moon

As if her lover
Were there to see her
Her kimono open
To the pale blue air

Soft silver light
On her naked shoulders
One leg forward
A hand on her thigh

Her face
Her breasts
In youthful magnificence . . .

All for a gaze
Before they die

dreaming till die...a good life.
but not single one wants to give up a thing for dream. that is why suffering. People speak dreams, sing dreams, write dreams, dream dreams but none live in their dreams. dreams, too fragile to cling on.

good poem.
