Death Perspective

mountain range

Autumn wind of eve,
blow away the clouds that mass
over the moon’s pure light
and the mists that cloud our mind,
do thou sweep away as well.
Now we disappear,
well, what must we think of it?
From the sky we came.
Now we may go back again.
That’s at least one point of view.

– Hōjō Ujimasa 1538-1590

  1. This image. Amazing

    I love this poem too! I kind of picture myself standing outside in the fall, feeling the wind while looking up at the sky.
