In Place: An Album 25


Through the bamboo screen,
watch leaves fall in autumn,
branches rattle in winter, foliage
tremble in spring, droop in summer

This is part of her tea “ritual.”

In the spring, cherry blossoms.
In the summer the cuckoo.
In autumn the moon.
In winter the snow, clear, cold.
Dogen (after Tanahashi)
