Year’s End

Year’s end,

all corners

of this floating world, swept.

— Matsuo Bashō (1644-1694), “Zen Poetry: Let the Spring Breeze Enter.” Translated by Lucien Stryk and Takashi Ikemoto

    Fabulous photo DK — Happy New Year to you and yours! One of my favourite sayings for this time of year is one I learned while at school in Germany – “guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr” – the loose translation is … ‘have a good slide into the New Year’ ❤

    Love the prose, and befuddled by the pic in this post. A bit deep for my modest mind
