A hand-sewn collection of haiku on the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Praised by tea masters both in the United States and in Japan for its elegant portrayal of the philosophy of tea, This Moment embraces the heart of chanoyu—ichi go, ichi e, one moment, one meeting.

the iron kettle
begins to sing
wind in the pine trees

earth and water
fired into a tea bowl
froth of green

host and guest
breathe together
powder becomes tea
