A poem and a picture


Yokaichiba City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan, March 1998


Farm woman blushes

As I point my camera,

Adjusts her bonnet.

Thanks for the haiku and the reminder of Han-shan and Shih-te ripping pages out of the sutra books and casting them to the winds.

Hi g,

Good to hear from you!
I haunt the various Buddhist blogs like a ghost. I really enjoy reading them, but the more I read, the more I'm reminded that if I don't get back to sitting on my ass and facing that wall, I ain't going nowhere.

P.S. Not that there's anywhere to go...
