Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn

by Wu Men Hui-k'ai

English version by Stephen Mitchell
Original Language Chinese

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.


-- from The Enlightened Heart: An Anthology of Sacred Poetry, by Stephen Mitchell
Poetry Chaikhana | Wu Men Hui-k'ai - Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn

The seasons are always good.

Sometimes what blows in on the wind is disgusting.
