At the edge of the pond, Japanese Friendship Garden, Phoenix, Arizona

witnessing pilgrims
in their search for purity—
pine and pond and stone
~~ ~~ ~~
In the bitter way,
even glorious visions
make pilgrims stumble.

  3. We think we will find the answer in beauty however we may find the answer in ugliness too. Which is of course a human conception and not necessarily the truth.
