On A Mountain Top


On a mountain top I sit alone yet not alone, watching clouds come and go

Ten thousand blue ridges far and below, misty haze lingering on

In the open air I gaze afar, listening to all tales new and old

Nothing unreal nothing real, light and dark revolving past

Only an ode to joy lasts


獨坐高峰上 白雲去復還 群山擁足下 嵐霧出岫間

坐觀天地闊 靜聽古今閒 無真亦無妄 明暗落山前

~ 五台山隱士常慧詩作


Cheers to the Vast
