In the Mountains

—Li Bai [Li Po]

Why do I live among the green mountains?

I laugh and don’t answer.

My soul is calm:

It dwells in another heaven and earth

Belonging to no one.

The peach trees are in flower.

The water flows on.

—Li Bai [Li Po]


Before the mountain, Poem By :Myochi Roko & Sherry Chayat, 1990

Before the mountain, by the grace of nature
I was allowed to realize “Oh!I am only a child!”
tendered by spruce and birds.

I saw without my usual defenses
and endless thinking.

I know anything or everything
coming between me and creation.
