Chinese Poetry

I searched for some Chinese poetry. I love the phrases used, different from our own. Sometimes it is hard to know if it was an ingenious placement of words or if it was coincidence from translation. Either way, in many instances the outcome is breathtaking or thought provoking. Sometimes it is something that you just wish you thought of first.

Like fortunes from fortune cookies I sometimes collect beautiful quotes. If I’m so lucky to write down the right words of a fleeting thought I collect them too. When I’m not lucky…lying in bed in the middle of the night without a pen or paper, I wake up and they are gone.

In tribute to all the thoughts that have floated away at night, here is to the mountain that we will leave behind.
