Dewdrops on a Lotus Leaf by Ryokan

Book Description

The Japanese poet-recluse Rykan (1758-1831) is one of the most beloved figures of Asian literature, renowned for his beautiful verse, exquisite calligraphy, and eccentric character. Deceptively simple, Rykans poems transcend artifice, presenting spontaneous expressions of pure Zen spirit. Like his contemporary Thoreau, Rykan celebrates nature and the natural life, but his poems touch the whole range of human experience: joy and sadness, pleasure and pain, enlightenment and illusion, love and loneliness.
