Awakening

“Every day, priests minutely examine the Dharma
And endlessly chant complicated sutras.
Before doing that, though, they should learn
How to read the love letters sent by
The wind and rain, the snow and moon.”

― Ikkyu, Ikkyu and the Crazy Cloud Anthology: A Zen Poet of Medieval Japan

Remains of a burnt letter of love
