Growing in Place with Mark Nepo – The Cherry Blossoms

How Do You See the Cherry Blossoms?

Today I’m offering one of my favorite haikus by the Japanese poet Kikakou, The Cherry Blossoms, and then lead a short meditation. I’m also inspired to share a poem of mine “At the Window” from The Way Under the Way: from the The Place of True Meeting. Hope you are doing well. Thanks for joining me. I wish you peace.
