#6 winter solstice 2102 – Rough Ideas

“I don’t believe that poetry can save the world. I do believe that the forces in us wish to share something of our experience by turning it into something and giving it to somebody: that is poetry.  That is some kind of saving thing, and as far as my life is concerned, poetry has saved me again and again.”

Jostling one another
along the one hundred steps
clusters of hydrangeas
Kyōko Shimizu

I love the image of clusters of hydrangeas pushing against each other along the one hundred steps. The one hundred steps remind me of climbing or leaving a temple or shrine of some sort, or perhaps another place where these flowers have lived for a very long time and have grown into each other as a result. I also envision human beings “jostling,” as they take the one hundred steps of their own lives . . .
