The Mountain and I

Birds, flying high, vanish in a race

Clouds wander adrift, leaving no trace

Seeing eye to eye with a knowing on the quiet

Just the mountain and I

~ Translated by Dot, from Li Bai’s “Sitting Alone On Mt. Jingting,” written in the Tang dynasty

衆鳥高飛盡,孤雲獨去閒。
相看兩不厭,唯有敬亭山。

~ 李白 (唐代) <<獨坐敬亭山>>
