playing in the sky

  
  


Kanzan and Jittoku 寒山拾得


Kanzan:
Where shall we go to play?
To the mountains? To the river?

Jittoku:
Let us go right up to the sky !

Dear Gabi,
The clouds are indeed inviting and inspirational in your pictures and the two haiku by you and Sakuo.

Thank you for sharing these.

“Wherever you are,
you are one with the clouds and
one with the sun and the stars you see.
You are one with everything.
That is more true than I can say,
and more true than you can hear.”

- Shunryu Suzuki
