Poetry: “Gion after dark”

Another Japan travel poem, trying for a certain mood.

Gion after dark

Lanterns glowing
In the gloom
Murky clouds
Shield sunset’s light

People wander
In the dark
Lanterns guidance
For their trek

Wooden buildings
Frozen time
Ancient Kyoto
Waking up

Can you hear it
Music old
Sounds of geta
And koto
