Fuji Circuit Haiku

The face of Tanuki-ko,
Too dimpled to reflect 
Fuji in the rain.

Clouds born of typhoon
Steal Fuji from the landscape,
While I distract myself with dreams.

A flirtatious wink,
As Fuji coyly pulls back
Her autumnal veil.

 Mountain maples splay
Their fingers toward new hues.
Fuji's five lakes at my feet.

On the turntable:  Robert Johnson, "Crossroads"
