Inner Knowing #4 (Impermanence)

Inner Knowing #4 (Impermanence)

…grey sky…naked trees…a blackbird…a worm…a moment just to be quiet and ponder the meaning of life…soon everything will be gone…and i left quietly, still wondering…

    This work reminds me of one Chinese poet, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma_Zhiyuan.
    Wonderful writing!

    • thanks for introducing me to Ma Zhiyuan. i am fascinated by Chinese poets, the likes of Li Po, Tu Fu, Mei Yao Ch’en, Su Tung Po, and many others.

        Yes, I have been always fascinated by their poetry since I was in my secondary school, and I used to be able to remember at least 200 short poems. Li Bai is of course the most favourite of all due to his limitless imagination. Tu Fu’s writing is more about humanity. Bai Juyi is more about enjoying the peasant life in the small village, and to avoid the darkness in working in the government. Recently, I also in love with Tagore’s poetry, and my writing too has a profound influence from both the ancient Chinese poets and Tagore.
