Haiku by Fuse Tokuko (布施徳子)

the scent of snow
I try to lose myself to it
just a little

雪の香へ自分を少し拔けてみる

we take turns
carrying the cold lantern
back home

一人ずつ灯台の冷え持ちかえる

NOTES: As ever, thank you, Grady, for saving me from my own bad translations. Once you point out the errors, they seem so ridiculously obvious.
