On the Mountain: Question and Answer

April 21, 2015 § 4 Comments

You ask me:

                Why do I live

on this green mountain?

     I smile

     No answer

               My heart serene

On flowing water

                    peachblow

                    quietly going

                    far away

          another earth

This is

          another sky

No likeness

               to that human world below.
