Carpe Diem Haiku *Iwamoto-ji (Temple 37)*

And so the Carpe Diem Haiku Shikoku Pilgrimage continues…along the Shimanto River all the way to the Iwamoto-ji Temple, devoted to the Five Great Buddhas of Wisdom. All Five Buddhas have their own complete capability system to overcome a particular evil with a particular good.

* * *
down to the river
pilgrim’s feet seek cool release
mind can’t stop walking

* * *
temple of five buddhas
perplexed among statues
before whom to bow first

* * *
good against evil
cat lurks in shadows of temple yard
bird’ s final song
