"With inspiration and encouragement from Ron Moss, and a great translation that fit the image by Makoto Ueda, I present this to an'ya . . . She who encourages everyone she meets . . .. The original photograph was taken along the 'Buck Head Trail in the Tonto National Forest of Arizona, USA . . . Ueda in his translation used the last line of 'Autumn nightfall', and that is the only translation I have seen of this poem that used 'nightfall' in it . . . Ron and I both agreed that it fit the image well . . . Hope you enjoy it my friend".  Peace --Mike (Rehling)
