The Rules of Poetic pilgrimage

” Going my way, like the way points on a-dot-by dot-drawing, I seize the image of the thing in my mind, then I put a pen to paper and the words will flow.”

“while I am thirsty for words, I always return to the source; it is inexhaustible and always refreshing, but still, I have to find my way to get in to it time, and again, always._Kalimelo

For, the snow had melt down, 
the bear-paws gone,
the wind had swiped the trace of it 
on the sands of the path,
and only the river still reflecting the image of it, 
that the moon it's has always been there, 
high in the sky, 
like the passage of the geese, in late fall, 
and the return of one swallow makes a Summer;
suffice to me to look at it."

_Basho, Zen master
Get inspired, You understand
