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
