Watch this a few times.  I promise you will laugh from your gut.  It's someone reciting one of Ikkyu's poems.   :D

Zen Master Ikkyu's funny dirty love poem / Crazy Cloud

I have bad news mixed with great news concerning my Ikkyu Research Project.  First of all, nothing on or by Ikkyu (Crazy Cloud) at local library. 

Also on the "bad" side:  Ikkyu and the Crazy Cloud Anthology: A Zen Poet of Medieval Japan sells for $141.68 at Amazon.  Not an option.

Great News.  Sonja Elaine Arntzen wrote a 337 page thesis paper for the Department of Asian Studies for her doctorate in philosophy at the University of British Columbia.  It is available as a pdf document!

The poetry of the Kyounshu "Crazy Cloud Anthology" of Ikkyu Sojun

It's a start.
