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

Darkness is not Darkness

micro_cosmic_star_pentagramSave me, O G‑d,
for the floodwaters are up to my neck.

Deeper and deeper I sink into the mire;
I can’t find a foothold.

I am in deep water,
and the floods overwhelm me.

From the depths, O L‑rd,
I call for your help. – A Psalm of David

When you felt most Alone
that is when He was closest

I pray the Highest Will
become our will

I pray our will become
The Highest Will

We were never alone

I choose…The Secret Path
