Mountain Sounds Carry A Chill Wisdom By Shih Shu

mountain sounds carry a chill wisdom by Shih Shu

English version by James H. Sanford
Original Language Chinese
mountain sounds carry a chill wisdom
an upwelling spring whispers subtle tales
pine breezes stir the fire beneath my tea
bamboo shadows soak deep into my robe
I grind my ink: clouds scraping across the crags
copy out a verse: birds settling on branches
as the world rolls right on by
its every turn tracing out non-action
