Ryōkan Memories

                                 Listening to the silent sound
                                 Of the moss-covered stream

                                 I feel myself grow as calm and transparent

                                 As the soundless sound of the covered current!


A few years ago I made a pilgrimage to visit Ryōkan's hermitage in West Japan you can read more of his poetry and that visit in the links below.
