FridayInspiration: The roaring waterfall

The roaring waterfall

is the Buddha’s golden mouth.

The mountains in the distance

are his pure luminous body.

How many thousands of poems

have flowed through me tonight!

And tomorrow I won’t be able

to repeat even one word.

By Su Tung-p’o, included in the “The Enlightened Heart” Anthology by Stephen Mitchell
