It flows far away.
Having gone far, it returns.*

*Hototogisu, translated as cuckoo, wood thrush and sometimes nightingale.
The bird’s song is a strong but mournful cry.
It is said to die after singing 8,008 times.
It is also known as the “bird of time,”
“messenger of death” and “bird of disappointed love,”
and flies back and forth from this world to the next.

The Radiant Buddha said:
Regard this fleeting world like this:
Like stars fading and vanishing at dawn,
Like bubbles on a fast moving stream,
Like morning dewdrops evaporating on blades of grass
Like a candle flickering in a strong wind, echoes, mirages, and phantoms, hallucinations, and like a dream
The Eight Similes of Illusion, from the Prajna Paramita Sutras
Kiss. There are a lot of ways to capture a kiss, between two people – lovers, family, friends; two animals, or even just the sending or receiving of a kiss. I captured this kiss between two storks in Morocco. I felt lucky to have captured this moment.
In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means KISS to you!
