The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

3 Haiku

Sitting warm and dry
reading under umbrella
poolside summer rain

Geese alight on pond
Confusion of Wings and Waves
A sudden stillness

Thunder. Pouring rain.
A single lighted window,
the meeting drags on.
