Hokusai, Mount Fuji, and I

I just changed the wallpaper on my Zenfone, yes it's called a Zenfone,

to Hokusai's 'Great Wave' where Mount Fuji looks from a distance

with dispassionate and unobstructed views at men in long boats

about to be enveloped by the ivory claws of transformation.

I saw Mount Fuji once myself while traveling the commuter rail

from Tokyo to Narita International. It was on a long and gentle turn

when its iconic shape came into view. It lasted for what seems a minute,

like an enigmatic whisper, like a voice behind a wall inside a dream,

and when the train had found its new assuredly unswerving direction,

I knew beyond that sea of great uncertainty there's never anything but
