Poem of the month:

The night is fresh and cool—
Staff in hand, I walk through the gate.
Wisteria and ivy grown together along the     winding mountain path;
Birds sing quietly in their nests and a     monkey howls nearby.  
As I reach a high peak a village appears in    the distance.
The old pines are full of poems;
I bend down for a drink of pure spring    water.
There is a gentle breeze, and the round    moon hangs overhead.
Standing by a deserted building,
I pretend to be a crane softly floating among    the clouds.

                     —Ryōkan, trans. John Stevens
