Blowing Winds

22 Jul

Please accept the within as a respite from the drama of your daily life. It is one of my many favorite poems.

Winds that blow – 

ask them:

“Which leaf on the tree shall be next?

Indulge yourself with another respite from your daily drama with — SANCHIN! Here is one of my indulgences from 1995 while boating on Lake Champlain, NY with Miko, R.I.P.

Respectfully submitted,


Sensei John Szmitkowski
