Hello friends, WINTER is here...the big tree is losing its leaves

and the buddha garden dojo has closed for the winter

WU WEI Tai Chi School will open again for classes in the Spring

Til then , be happy...

 and see you when the sun returns and the frost melts

yours in the Tao,

  Sifu Andy Green

Here are some lovely Winter Haikus from the well loved Japanese poet
 Matsuo Basho who lived from 1644 – 1694 
Winter Solitude
by Matsuo Basho
Winter solitude –
in a world of one colour
the sound of wind.

Winter Garden
by Matsuo Basho
Winter garden,
the moon thinned to a thread,
insects singing.

First Winter Rain
by Matsuo Basho
First winter rain –
even the monkey
seems to want a raincoat.

When the Winter Chrysanthemums Go
by Matsuo Basho
When the winter chrysanthemums go,
there’s nothing to write about
but radishes.
