We know sorrow because we have feelings
if we felt no sorrow we would be insensate
as long as we don't get caught in a net
or require a thousand acre estate
soaring on the wind we touch the sky
and crimson clouds lit by the sun
with our cold-ash minds
in our dead-tree abodes
why would we turn toward worldly attractions
but once we succeed in forgetting our selves
can we learn to leave our selves in peace

Juan Chi
