An Ancient Poem For A Modern Device

This is the first post to the blog that I’m making with my iPhone. I’ll be on vacation soon and I’m seeing if this WordPress for iPhone application works as advertised.

For my first remote post with this new gizmo,I’d like to offer up a very old poem.

The poem is from a collection of ancient Chinese poetry called Crossing The Yellow River.

The poem is called Zazen on Ching-t’ing Mountain. It was written by Li Po in the 8th century.

The poem—

The birds have vanished down the sky.
Now the last cloud drains away.

We sit together, the mountain and me,
Until only the mountain remains.
