losing the mountain to find the path

pathIn the Stag’s Garden

Empty mountain
not a soul to be seen
Only echoes of voices
sounding in the distance.

Ray of the setting sun
in the deep woods:
On the moss
a final burst of light: green

Wang Wei

from In Love with the Way: Chinese poems of the Tang Dynasty by Francois Cheng & Fabienne Verdier

Thank you for practising,
