Burning pyre Haiku

gazing at smoke clouds

burning pyre of her earth-form

depart as sun sets

.

* For Carpe Diem Distillation # 2. The above haiku is a distillation of the following poem by Genji:
the evening sky itself
becomes something to cherish
when I gaze at it,
seeing in one of the clouds
the smoke from her funeral pyre
