This rare and heavenly creature
alone without peer
look and it's not there
it comes and goes but not through doors
it fits inside a square-inch
it spreads in all directions
unless you acknowledge it
you'll meet but never know


-- from The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain, Translated by Red Pine


Poetry Chaikhana | Han-shan (Cold Mountain) - This rare and heavenly creature

Note the similarity to chapter 14 of the Tao Te Ching.
