May 28 2016 – month of daily flower & buddha photos – day 28
Maitreya & Amitabha Buddhas as the Ho-Ho Twins as Han-shan & Shih-te
in my pujasthan at home….
a poem by Han-shan (Cold Mountain)
Bird-song drowns me in feeling.
Back to my shack of straw to sleep.
Cherry-branches burn with crimson flower,
Willow-boughs delicately trail.
Morning sun flares between blue peaks,
Bright clouds soak in green ponds.
Who guessed I’d leave that dusty world,
Climbing the south slope of Cold Mountain?
