And if the Wine you drink, the Lip you press,
End in the Nothing all Things end in - Yes

love letters






.


Every day, priests minutely examine the Law

And endlessly chant complicated sutras.

Before doing that, though, they should learn

How to read the love letters sent by the wind

and rain, the snow and moon.


–Ikkyu
Sonya Arutzen translation
