A beautiful Japanese Haiku --

scent of plum blossoms
on the misty mountain path
a big rising sun --
Matsuo Bashoume
ga ka ninotto
In Japense
[ the actual 'poetic' content of today's haiku. ]

Suffice to say that i find this image immensely -- evocative --- the image in my mind is that of saffron-clad Buddhist monks in a temple as old as the hills, ringing a deep gong , to welcome the sunrise while pilgrims from afar walk up the mountain paths through a carpet of fallen Cherry blossoms..........
