The Tower


Mars strikes,
When the fames are fallen from
the tree of life

-IW.Crow


Morning coffee,
sound of waves,
sparrow flies under the table

The Magi

Now as at all times I can see in the mind's eye,
In their stiff, painted clothes, the pale unsatisfied ones
Appear and disappear in the blue depth of the sky
With all their ancient faces like rain-beaten stones,
And all their helms of silver hovering side by side,
And all their eyes still fixed, hoping to find once more,
Being by Calvary's turbulence unsatisfied,
The uncontrollable mystery on the bestial floor.

- W.B. Yeats

The Wheel of Fortune


Rotating the karma with zodiacs,
Sphinx and Rat,
talking to Jupiter.

Ancient pond
a froggy jumped in
silence

Amazon Kindle


I recently bought an amazon-kindle in Japan. It has been delivered by UPS within 5 days. It also can be used in Japan and the network fee is covered by amazon for the purchasing. Unfortunately, not all the books I wanted were not available from the kindle-store. I should feel lucky with the situation, since I am buying many books which are not needed at the moment. It is now a Grimoire which contains a lot of information in 10.2 ounces.

As the crow flies

It has been a long time not to write my Blog. I will use this blog for my book review and writings, may be, at this moment. The title has been taking from an English idiom referencing the shortest route between two points.
