Gifts, received and offered

Among the birthday gifts I received and for which I am grateful, there was this, from students in Portugal, which I now offer here, like « the scattering leaves: »

Make the universe your companion,
always bearing in mind
the true nature of things –
mountains and rivers,
trees and grasses,
and humanity.
Enjoy the falling blossoms
and the scattering leaves.

Basho, Learn from the Pine
