The sensibility of tea ceremony and haiku Barry Magid May 5th 2012

I’d like to begin by reading some verses by Milton Moon, who was an Australian potter who spent many years in Zen training in Japan many decades ago in the Rinzai tradition. Now he’s back in Australia making ceramics that bridge the sensibility of Japanese tea ceremony and something of the native Australian art and materials. He sent me this long poem about the sensibility of tea ceremony and haiku and how they are linked. It’s called the “Seasons of Culture” by Milton Moon.
