hello William,
sun and clouds touch
this mountain side, the light
pierced curled leaves, the delicate fallen,
crisp crisp, the refrain, limitless tips; branches dance
where control is to measure, this is the generalized case.
where control is to force, this is a specialized case.
view, indeed, is the forerunner of any path.
street signs alight in morning glow.
standing, hearing deep at
crossed roads, it is
here decisive,
shu gyo.
