boys in the woods

August 25, 2010

Emptiness is a name for nothingness,

A name for ungraspibility,

A name for mountains, rivers, the whole earth.

It is also called the real form.

In the green of the pines,

The twist of the brambles,

There is no going and coming;

In the red of the flowers

And the white of the snow,

There is no birth and no death.

– Ryusai
