I suggested we become caribouddhists, wandering with the great hers, listening to their stories, tasting the ice and joining in their quest for enlichenment."

Through crystal windows
Beauty of cherry blossoms
Fill my heart with joy
Yet when my eyes looked beneath
Fallen petals saddened me.

In Little's words, "In 1190 the Japanese poet Jien composed in four hours, a 100-set tanka sequence on the subjects of flowers, cuckoo, moon, snow, love, pine, bamboo, mountain hut, sea lane, reflections -- ten poems on each subject. I was inspired to do the same, though my 100-set tanka sequence, on the same subjects, took a little longer -- about twelve days."

the mountains tumbling down
in all directions
daily I find a bit more
of the still center searched for
