6. Mt Fuji from Kajikazawa

"I watch the fisherman above those waves, smaller versions of Hokusai's big one, which has always symbolized death for me. The little deaths rolling about him, the man hauls in a silver-sided catch."

Still revellers danced, and sang, and trod
The hither bank of Time's deep tide,
Still one by one they left and fared
To the far misty thither side;

And now the last hath slipt away
Yon drear Death-desert to explore,
And now one Pilgrim worn and lorn
Still lingers on the lonely shore.

- from The Kasidah, by Sir Richard Burton
