went literal: one held shakuhachi note, resonating at C1 - C6

.............. . . .

The haiku of the week was written by Sôen Nakagawa, a key figure in the transmission of Zen Buddhism from Japan to the Western world.

The shakuhachi is a Japanese end-blown flute that was originally introduced from China into Japan in the 8th century. If you’re curious to hear how it sounds, check out this video: youtube.com/watch?v=f7s-wXZWT5o
