Tanka 1 - Poem by Life Poem

High on the mountain,
An illuminated face,
Is Brightest of them all.
Holding the secrets of dark,
Kissing us to sleep.

Can you guess what this Japanese poem is referring to?

    Tanka is a Japanese Poem which has 5 syllables in the first line
    Then 7
    then 5
    then 7
    then 7.

    And your guess is wrong.
