Japanese Gardens: A Journey Into Zen
A Book about the Geometry of Calm with Photographs and Small Poems. 2nd edition rewritten entirely to only feature my own poems.
A poem I wrote about the second edition:
A world of calm, of rocks, sand, trees, shrubs and moss. Little streams water the grounds. The colors are earthy and bright, no gusty winds dishevel the patterns. The wooden floors are swept clean. The mats lay still.
The most peaceful land on earth. It makes nice thoughts and asks deep questions. A design with no intent or angle. Whatever you bring you can take back. We don’t know who made it that way.
You can come back many times and find it just the same. Trees bend this way or that. Twigs flow here or there. Ponds flicker. Rocks ripple the sand a little.
It is now on Amazon:
