Turning clear and transparent

November 4, 2010

From Daily Zen, something from one of my favorite poets:

Like the little stream
Making its way
Through the mossy crevices
I, too, quietly
Turn clear and transparent.

– Ryokan Taigu (1758-1831)

As we work our way through life’s trials, carefully taking note of its twists and turns, our minds quiet and the nature of things becomes more clear.
