Kanekos Beauty Award Winning Orchid 2008 Kaneko’s Beauty
so rich and deep,
so strong yet delicate,
such largesse!

Our Sensei,
connects us
like Kaneko’s Beauty
transcending the ordinary
with an eternal splendor,
a joie de vivre of promise,
a commitment of brotherhood,
with the paternal majesty,
of a global citizen.

We can only imagine
the fire you’ve been through;
agonizing challenges to stand
through trial after trial
alongside your man,
your family,
your civilization
for Kosen Rufu.

Da, da, da!
Kaneko’s Beauty -- an exemplary blossom
for a new age,
The Age of Soka.
