CD: Taue (Rice Planting)

Carpe Diem #220



sacred rice seedlings
offering to mother earth 
as oxen till rows

***

deities look down
as rice seedlings are planted
to feed a nation

  3. Thank you, MMT and Joanne. I see nature as sacred and hate that man is not honoring it and wreaking such havoc on the planet.

  4. All and everything on Earth (and above) is sacred ... we have to share that to the world ... our Japanese ancestors and the classical haiku poets did know that already.
    All is sacred, as we saw in our tarot month ... God is in everything, because all is made from 'God-stuff'.

  6. Those bended farmers should be treated as deities by their nation ;)
