As Flowing Waters Disappear Into The Mist By Shih Shu

as flowing waters disappear into the mist by Shih Shu

English version by James H. Sanford
Original Language Chinese
as flowing waters disappear into the mist
we lose all track of their passage.
every heart is its own Buddha;
to become a saint, do nothing.
enlightenment: the world is a mote of dust,
you can look right through heaven’s round mirror
slip past all form, all shape
and sit side by side with nothing, save Tao.
