Walks in Japanese Gardens

This was taken
 on one of our early-summer Yuki Teikei haiku walks 
at Hakone Gardens in Saratoga.

It is possible to sit for a long time 
watching the graceful carp move in the water
and thinking about life, about beauty and about art.
If you can do it with friends like these, you are very fortunate.

cool bronze feet
of the lilypond crane--the carp's
whiskered shadow
