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.

Poem
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

Poem
炉のうちは炭斗瓢柄の火箸
陶器香合ねり香と知れ

ro no uchi wa sumitori fukube e no hibashi tōki kōgō nerikō to shire

A dried gourd carries
charcoal for tea at the hearth,
Rolled incense is held
by a quaint case made of earth,
wood-handle chopsticks prove their worth.

Main topic – Breathing
