Clear Evening After Rain

“The Sun sinks toward the horizon,

the light clouds blow away.

A rainbow shines in the river,

the last raindrops spatter the rock.

Cranes and herons soar in the sky,

fat bears feed around the banks.

I wait here for the west wind

and enjoy the crescent moon

shining through the misty bamboo.”

— Du Fu
One of the most beloved Tang poets 700 China. Sourced from Deng Ming-Dao’s ‘The Lunar Tao’ – pg 29 – A Drop Starts a Cycle

The Circle of Seeking

Understanding

Awakening

Liberation

Rinse and repeat

When you are ready

For freedom

Seek yourself

The way is hidden

Our lives are short

And can be beautiful

Leave it all behind

No treasure

No reward

All is Maya

There is nothing to do

And no one to do it

I know that I am nothing

But a cherry blossom tree

I know I am boundless

Now I’m free
