Autumn, the Seasom of Loss has Come Early This Year.

Empty-handed I entered
the world
Barefoot I leave it.
My coming, my going --
Two simple happenings
That got entangled.

Like dew drops
on a lotus leaf
I vanish.

- Kozan Ichikyo

Our cat George left us today, and yesterday we got news that our Australian Shepherd Zeke will be leaving us soon. This beautiful piece just seems appropriate
