Carol Snow

Tour

Near a shrine in Japan he'd swept the path
and then placed camellia blossoms there.

Or -- we had no way of knowing -- he'd swept the path
between fallen camellias.

    Nice! Evokes that quality of Japan and Japanese culture that some of us are really drawn to.

    It makes a mockery of poetry. It's drivel from the lips of vanity.
