moon viewing

Tonight is moonviewing at the Seattle Japanese Garden- one of my favorite events to play music with. John and I will be playing at the event together for the first time. How wonderful that will be! Playing in the beautiful garden, next to the pond. And poems will be read....

Whatever we wear,
We look beautiful
When moon-viewing
-- Chiyo-ni

Today's moon,
Will there not be anyone
Taking up his pen?

(trans. R.H. Blyth)

What a special night this will be.

viewing the moon
no one at the party
has such a beautiful face

- Basho (Jane Reichhold, trans.)
