Novice - Poem by Hiro Kayabara

The Abbott and his friend
Playing endless games
Of Go by candlelight
While I scrub bowls
With the light of the moon
And the sound of cicadas
In the cucumber patch

    Hiro this is an excellent poem! The sound of cicadas gripped me well, I see the uncertainty of the mysterious life. (Report) Reply
