Original Mind

July 15, 2013 Comments Off on Original Mind

Studying texts and stiff meditation
can make you lose your Original Mind.
A solitary tune by a fisherman, though,
can be an invaluable treasure.
Dusk rain on the river,
the moon peeking in and out of the clouds;

Elegant beyond words,
he chants his songs night after night.
