Todays Blog is a poem:
An Evening At Cross Creek
You ask me why should I stay in this blue mountain.
I smile but do not answer. O, my mind is at ease.
Peach blossoms and flowing streams pass away without trace.
How different from the mundane world!
<em>Li Po, Chinese Poet
likely born 701</em>
Li Po, you ask me why
I stay in this blue mountain.
I smile but do not speak –
clarity from thinking
thoughts with no solutions –
The evening sky is purple.
I look at Florida palm trees.
Dark water breaking at my feet.
Two sandhills fly trailing thin legs.
I stay in this blue mountain;
I cling to moon and clouds,
to night and solitude.
For only here,
in this blue mountain,
do I live.
Thank you for reading and enjoy your day.
