Aokigahara – Sea of Trees

Aokigahara – Sea of Trees
“Life is complicated. It’s filled with nuance. It’s unsatisfying… If I believe in anything, it is doubt. The root cause of all life’s problems is looking for a simple fucking answer.” Anthony Bourdain

Beautiful dense at the base of Mt. Fuji –
Signs at path beginning warn
to stay on path lest you be lost.
In the beauty is a huge yuck factor:
Don’t follow the tapes –
Youmayfindabody.
It is the #1 place in Japan
to contemplate/commit
…suicide

Sunrise on Mt. Fuji

Today at dVerse, Paul is the Pubtender. He is prompting us to write on “drunkenness”.

Sunrise on Mt. Fuji
On Mt. Fuji’s summit
the air is thin.
The water in my bottle is warm –
as it goes down my throat –
pure nectar!
The sun begins to rise.
I become drunk on the sun –
peace settles in my soul.

summer dawn begins
fire glows, dark hills sleep – silence
then awakening
