To say something without saying it,

Content with things as they are.

Let the thread continue to appear and disappear.

The moment it's started, it's already done.

 

When you think you've caught a glimpse of the given or the possible,

It's already done.

What lies within the darkness, one cannot distinguish.

Let the thread continue to appear and disappear.

 

What lies in the eye is not the same in the ear.

To say something without saying it.

An invisible summary of visible instances,

Dim shadows within emptiness.

The world's concrete features;

It's mountains, rivers, trees, and insects.

Who would not be moved to celebrate in its song?

 

I dream the dream of yesternight.

Giving proper stress to certain passages

Life must be grasped in the midst of its flow

The world's concrete features.

 

Love in all its phases.

All attendant hopes and fears,

joys and sorrows.

Transcendence of division.

 

Amid the deepest mountains paths,

reigns complete and utter silence.
