“It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.”John Steinbeck ~ The Log from the Sea of Cortez,
Kamakiri praying mantis (Japanese)
While cleaning the pool,
brushing the autumn leaves away,
I looked down to see Kamakiri !
Away to the stars goes this pearl !
So current a message,
symbolic and ritualistic,
of a little green body
acknowledging this season.
