Saihou Jodo

who will carry me to saihou jodo*
what to bring there what to wear?
   take me to the top of a mountain
   leave something behind to forget

who'll build another kogetsudai+
fire my body at the silvery moon?
   leave something behind to forget
   falling into orbit & spinning space

who'll throw me into ginshadan~
drown all my past in the wet sand?
   falling into orbit & spinning space
   shutting my eyes in the darkness

who will carry me to saihou jodo*
what to bring there what to wear?
   shutting my eyes in the darkness  
   take me to the top of a mountain


* paradise mountain in the west
+ platform towards the moon
~ silver sand sea

[silver pavilion, kyoto]

  2. Hi Adam,

    I feel for you in Philly! At least here in Tokyo it is not snowing. Thanks for your kind words – it has indeed been fantastic to see the world. Today, alas, is my last day of travelling. I`m heading back to Melbourne this afternoon to resume normal services. I`d very much like to put out a book myself … hopefully something will come along soon. Then, who knows, maybe an east-coast USA tour! Springsteen style!!

    best wishes
    Davei
