Haiku Poem

dark fog
light pierces blur
all clearsn

こうせん や かすみ を さして はれわたる

Most people have experienced the dark of night just before dawn when it is still hard to see. Once the sun begins to rise, the darkness retreats and the sky clears. I imagine that this effect is similar to eye surgery. The patient’s clouded lens impairs vision until a laser is used to cut through the lens. The lens is then replaced with a new one that provides the patient with clearer vision.
