The worth of cherry blossoms

The story I told in church yesterday was about Rengetsu, and closed with this poem:

Through their
kindness in refusing
me lodging,
I found myself
beneath the
Beautiful blossoms
On the night of the
Misty moon.
Sometimes a "wrong turn" or an unlucky event will bring you the gift of the unexpected, and of beauty. May it be so.
