here with you in the eternal now

June 14, 2010

I rest on the bank of a stream
Whose water is calm and clear.
After rain, the wisterias are clean,
The ancient rocks beautiful in the clouds.
The new green leaves are lovely,
And the falling flowers
Are still charming.
Green rocks equal embroidered
Folding screens,
Blue moss replaces a silk cushion.
I wonder what else is needed for a life.
Sitting with my chin in my hand,
I forget to return
It’s lonely, the sun sets
Above the mountain,
And evening smoke rises at the
Edge of the forest.

– Choeui Eusoon (1786-1866)
