“However gifted and accomplished a man may be, there is something lacking if he does not pursue the art of love. He is like a precious wine cup without a base.”
From Essays in idleness by Yoshida Kenkō, 1330—1332.
a wine cup with base by James Meredith
“A collection of 120 haiku, senryu and tanka, a wine cup with base is a love story told through the movement of the seasons. Meredith displays an engaging honesty and candidness, without threatening to compromise the tender tone throughout the entire sequence.”
