#619 Serenity in nature

With dewdrops dripping,
I wish somehow I could wash
this perishing world

moonless night...
a powerful wind embraces
the ancient cedars

Temple bells die out.
The fragrant blossoms remain.
A perfect evening! ~ Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

- How much do you enjoy the serenity in nature?
- How can you strive to cultivate this relationship?
