    Brilliant! Such a stupendous and sacred moment, only in the Japanese masters can you find. Well, I'm really looking forward on starting one of his beat novels...! (Report) Reply

    I wondered what kind of haiku Kerouac would write. A pretty good one, I find, as an image, at least! (Report) Reply
