"NIKKO"

The circus is dwarfed,

Here,  amongst royal trees.

Shogun crests mandala

Each footstep printed

On steps & stones

Pointing up & beyond.

The mysteries still beckon,

Amidst carved incense

Burning deities upward:

Spiraling clouds soothe

The pilgrim's hungry eyes,

And lure sensitivities on

To three locked doors - - -

Where great hearts swell.
