Discovering the footprints

April 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

Along the riverbank under the trees, I discover footprints!

Even under the fragrant grass I see his prints.

Deep in remote mountains they are found.

These traces no more can be hidden than one’s nose, looking heavenward.

second verse of “Bulls” by Chinese Master Kakuan, twelfth century
