naviarhaiku537 – Deep in the mountains

Deep in the mountains -
falling into my heart
autumn streams



by: Shinkei


Shinkei (1406-75) was a renowned renga poet and critic, best known for his two-part work "Sasamegoto" (Murmured Conversations). To find out more about this interesting and largely unknown poet-priest, I recommend reading Heart's Flower - The Life and Poetry of Shinkei by Esperanza Ramirez-Christensen
