Genji Monogatari: The Festival of the Cherry Blossoms

The relativity principle
holds only insofar
as the reduction
in biodiversity in the
rice paddies can be
attributed to the massive
overuse of agricultural
chemicals. Time is
reduced to a single
point in space, can
no longer tell us how
the big bang gave rise
to the universe as we
used to know it. The
longbow moon is met
by the silence of crickets
& frogs, the rhetorical
koan of do flowers
blossom when no-
one is there to see or
smell them. "I have
drawn 'Spring' from the
Urushi box," said Genji.
