ten thousand flowers in spring

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, 12c Chinese poet
(transl: S. Mitchell)

      1. I love it too. And then when summerr comes, I realise I love it too, and the same goes for autumn and winter. I’m easy like that 😉
