What I'm reading on my phone...

The Great Passage by Shion Miura is one of those novels that remind me why I read Japanese fiction, one of those delightful tales where plot serves the characters, unlike most western novels where characters serve the plot. It is a story about the power of words, about the tenacity of love, about the resilience of friendship over time. Juliet Winters Carpenter's marvelous translation makes it all come alive for readers in English. Henry's books .

In the glen...


Down in the glen

the sun is warm

and the wind soft,

Just close your eyes,

it might be spring,

but breathe the air,

dry and dusted light

with a smoky hint

of the fallen and burning,

It is autumn for sure,

Winter lurks somewhere

close, just out of sight.
