SKKS IV: 317

Composed when he was celebrating Tanabata on the Seventh Day of the Seventh Month.


kumoma yori
hoshiai no sora wo
ama no kawa nami
In the space between the clouds
On meeting stars within the sky
I turn my gaze:
So restless
Are the waves on Heaven’s River.

Chief Priest [Ōnakatomi no] Sukechika
