Not going, not coming,
rooted, deep and still.
not reaching out, not reaching in,
just resting, at the center.
The single jewel, the flawless crystal drop,
in the blaze of its brilliance,
the way beyond.
— Shih Te
From the Cold Mountain Poems of Han Shan, Shih Te and Wang Fan-chih, translated by J.P. Seaton.
