fervor of revelery gone
the coolness of ashes
on my forehead
--gillena cox

I read quite recently, an account of ashes in the japanese culture...A story is told about three tea masters who had a magnificent tea room with much valuable equipment. One day the house caught fire and the 3 tea masters rushed in to save what they could. The first thing they saved was the ashes! The point being made with this story is that everything involved in a tea ceremony has been given careful aesthetic attention, even the ashes. In Trinidad and Tobago Ash Wednesday for many christians starts the period of penitence spanning forty week days. How does ashes feature signicifantly in your culture; haiku this in CKK#11
