Poem #88
When displaying a wicker flower vase in the alcove space,
It sits directly on the floor with no board under its base
toko no ue ni kago hana-ire o oku toki wa usuita nado wa shikanu mono nari

板床に葉茶壺茶入品々を飾らで 飾る法も有りけり
ita-doko ni ha-cha-tsubo cha-ire shina-jina o kazara de kazaru hō mo arikeri

A board-floor alcove rejects precious pieces like tea jars for display

Chinese tea
Die Ros’ ist ohn warumb
Sie blühet weil sie blühet
Sie achtt nicht jhrer selbst
fragt nicht ob man sie sihet.
The rose is without “Why”?
It blooms because it blooms
Not admiring itself 
Nor asking to be seen by others.


Angelus Silesius (1624-1677)
