The Moon of Taneda Santoka
Somewhere the moon wanders. Moon of Taneda Santoka. 2017
Metal, acrylic glass, LED
Moon dedicated to the Japanese poet Taneda Santoka.
He was a poet-stranger, his life passed in wanderings.
So I imagined his
moon as a vagabond with a stick.
The crescent in round spectacles,
in a broad-brimmed hat, the wanderer is not known where with the
stick of a Zen monk. Young moon of the old poet who wrote the immortal lines:
Now again all day
Walked towards the wind.
Without a goal, to wander and wander.
The moon follows me.
All in the moonlight.
Wanders around the world
My old hat
