snow after midnight
drifting into a dream
of empty roads

This reminds me a little bit of Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" for the mood and effect, which is like that of a soft dream.

Thanks for your comment, anon. Even though I wasn't thinking of the Frost poem as I wrote, I've lived with that poem for years, and I don't doubt that it had something to do with this one.

that's the exact feeling snow captures... that emptiness... yet not frightening at all because of it's dreamlike quality.

I very much like the way line 2 can be read variously. Gives a fine ambiguity, adding to the dream-quality of the ku. Nicely done.

Thanks, Denis. You know, it wasn't until I looked at what I'd written that I noticed the ambiguity you mention.
