After a rain in L.A. 
you see the world afresh

After two days of heavy rain
I went out today 
and stopped still when I saw 
snow-covered mountains like diamonds in the distance

I thought of Mt. Fuji
and how good it is to live beneath sacred mountains

I went in to the park and saw 

a Japanese-American girl in a kimono, wooden shoes and all 

And when I noticed

(click any image to enlarge)

cherry blossoms
I understood

I remembered my time in Kyoto

Where a man sees his shadow   

and other sights impossible to categorize

Today in L.A.
on a fine day

Asian-American kids 

dress up 
and photograph each other 

when cherry trees blossom
