I received a beautiful gift of Kenneth Rexroth’s translations of Japanese poems for a recent birthday. The genius of their profound observations are breathtaking.  I have been reading them over and over again each time drawn into a different world.

Here is just one to whet your appetite:

How can I blame the cherry blossoms
for rejecting this floating world
and driftng away as the wind calls them?
