the purple coneflower

pointer

living at aikido shobukan dojo, one of the duties is to water the garden and wash the path. habits easily formed, habits easily broken. yet one morning on this water walk, something truly unexpected happened, citing this case, look!

case

a mosquito,
introduced –
to the garden hose.

commentary

beyond time,
beyond space.
this kofu-an-toku:
beyond perfection,
it casts no shadow,
but a monkey paw,
stuck in pitch.
bzzzzzz.
