Anonymous (Japanese - 10th Century)

The only thing I learned from a college philosophy course was something from Ludwig Wittgenstein which I always paraphrase as: "If you have nothing to say, shut up".  (The actual quote is : "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.")   That applies to commenting on today's poem:
Anonymous - Japanese  10th Century

Early morning glows
in the faint shimmer
of first light.
Chocked with sadness,
I help you into your clothes.
