Daily Zen #essentialsofrecovery

Rainy days in the empty forest.
Smoke rises late as I steam greens
And boil millet to take to the paddies.
Above the foggy waterfields
Fly white egrets
And an oriole sings in 
Dense shade of summer trees.
In the mountain I practice silence, 
Contemplating morning hibiscus.
I pick hollyhock beneath a pine, 
A vegetarian now,
No longer looking for position, 
An old man living in the wilds;
Why should seagulls still be wary of me?

- Wang Wei (699-759)
