Blow away the clouds.


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.

~ Wu-men (1183-1260)

  1. Ah, it’s those unnecessary things that keep getting in the way! The beauty is there, we just need to see and appreciate it with a clear and focused mind. Thanks for the reminder.


  2. I have to confess, I’m not much of a poetry person ordinarily. But I do like this simple little poem. (Is it a poem?) 🙂
    Thanks, Gretchen, for finding worthwhile thoughts to share with all your blogging buds.
