Poem

L’homme fut sûrement le vœu le plus fou des ténèbres; c’est pourquoi nous sommes ténébreux, envieux et fous sous le puissant soleil.

– René Char

Man was surely the maddest vow of the shadows; that’s why we are shadowy, envious and mad under the powerful sun.

Main Topic – Enshu Ryu

風炉の時炭は菜籠にかね火箸ぬり香合に白檀をたけ

For the brazier,
Use sandalwood incense from
A lacquerware case;
All-metal chopsticks are used
To arrange the charcoal in place
