Gary Thorp (Shelter from the Storm) tells us: “I’ve always looked at Buddhism and nature, not as two separate entities, but as two different ways of seeing the same thing. Descriptive writing about the relationship between Buddhism and nature is part of our long heritage, and it is a great challenge to try to do this kind of writing well. Creating a worthy haiku can be every bit as difficult as producing a multi-paged essay. There are just so many different ways in which this kind of writing can go wrong that, for me, it’s almost always surprising when it turns out well.”
