Collaborative Haiku

Fuji mountain
as we come from the station
greeting us

In the town of Zengyo, when emerging from steps at the train station, Mt. Fuji is directly ahead. Late in the afternoon, throngs of people return from work. It’s as though Fuji is greeting them, saying “okaerinasai” (please come home; the usual Japanese welcoming phrase) as they leave the station.
