and yet … we have a poem

The great paradox:
intimacy is realized,
separation dissolves,
and yet … we have a poem.

  1. Wonderful to see this poem again, and illustrated with such a stunning image. Li Po has always been one of favorite Chinese poets and this one is a stunner. Thanks for posting it Miriam.

    1. Thanks for commenting Ron.

      I love this poem because it expresses the great paradox:
      How can the poet/artist disappear into the world, and yet deliver a message home?

      Emptiness to Emptiness, via Emptiness.
      ~ ml, bowing
