Love letters sent by the wind

Fifty Words To Help You Flirt Well: Lilt

Every day, priests minutely examine the Law
And endlessly chant complicated sutras.
Before doing that, though, they should learn
How to read the love letters sent by the wind
and rain, the snow and moon.
~ Ikkyu
(1394–1481, Japanese Zen Buddhist monk, saint and poet)
