The rest of her long and productive life was devoted to spiritual pursuits, service to others and a multifaceted career as a poet, calligrapher, potter and painter. This is a selection of her finest waka poetry, presented in both the original Japanese and in English. Illustrated with reproductions of Rengetsus pottery, painting and calligraphy, Lotus Moon is an invitation to commune with the soul of a remarkable woman and her artistic legacy.
