Nibbling On Asian History & Philosophy Series
Poem by: Saigyo (1118-90)
From the book: The Japanese Tea Garden By Marc Peter Keane (Page 30)
Gazing up upon
the early morning moon
filtering through the trees
My loneliness carried deeper
by the pine wind along the ridges
Hermit Poet’s comments:
In today’s constant eyeballs on the screens lifestyle, are humans losing the tranquility felt when alone in nature?
A simple few hours hike in the woods or a morning sunrise walk on the beach brings us back to nature. These quiet times connect the body, mind, and spirit with the earth. No selfies, just skin and bones alone in the natural environment.
