First Snow / Hatsu yuki


early first snow -
will the leaves decide
to fall now?




A most spectacular morning with dark blue sky, white earth and red leaves inbetween.


Further down the road, a wide view on my very own Siberia.

sea of clouds
hovering over
land of snow







first snow -
breathtaking moments
melting away

and all was gone within three hours.

Hekigan Roku, Case 13: Haryo's "Silver Bowl"

A monk asked Haryo, "What is the Deva Sect?"
Haryo said, "Heaping up snow in a silver bowl."


my bowl of snow
all filled with silver -
the mind wanders
