Tranströmer in Japan

Mori at the Takada-Honzan Temple in Tsu, Japan_

I met Megumi from Japan when she came to Boston to attend college. During her time here she enjoyed her American experience. I had studied Japanese culture and poetry during my academics. I introduced her to the poetry of Tomas Tranströmer and gave her one of his books and a photo. After her return to Japan, enchanted by his poetry, she sent me a photograph of herself with a Tranströmer photo at the Takada-Honzan Temple in Tsu, Japan.   Steven Ford Brown
