The Word

Welcome to Wednesday Muse. A Japanese word today for the prompt. How many of you have daydreamed? How many of you have gazed at the moon, at the distant landscape, at the ocean and let your thoughts go silent?

Today is the word is "boketto" (boe-kay-toe) which in Japanese means: gazing at the distant landscape with an empty mind. I would like you all to gaze at whatever you choose and let your minds go silent.

Then write a poem - a stream of consciousness poem, a few words you came up with while gazing, a story you made up while looking at the stars. That's it. Plain and simple. Boketto. Gaze into the distance and let it speak it you.
