Tsukimi – Moon Viewing


Jiku – Master Kidō


Mizu o kiku sureba/ tsuki te ni ari

I scoop up water and the moon is in my hands


Enlightenment Poem  – Chiyono: also known as Mugai Nyodai (1223-1298)


tonikaku ni/ takumishi oke no/ soko nukete/ mizu tamaraneba/ tsuki mo yadorazu


With this and that I tried to keep the bucket together, and then the bottom fell out. Where water does not collect, the moon does not dwell

– Translation, Merle Kodo Boyd, 2013.
