Dedicated to Taeko Takaori (1910-1988), poet and friend
First words
When on the edge of ripened fields of rice, first the red lily, then later blue gentian, I too find land full; like dragonflies and crickets go unprotesting into the coming winter.
Wearing blue robes and perched upon their hand-drums as though they were horses, some sorcerers of old Tibet could ride though the sky without metals, without mechanics, without gasses.
A choice of phenomena comes to consciousness every new morning.
