A Welcome Moment of Quiet Reflection


Wang Wei Reaches Through the Ages
Wang Wei, an 8th century Chinese poet and devote Buddhist is best known for his poems like this one-- four simple lines of verse depicting quiet scenes of water and mist, and little human presence. Referred to as 'the Poet Buddha', his poems were said to 'hold a painting in them'. 

A Welcome Moment of Quiet Reflection

I offer you this restful Wang Wei poem to contemplate before you start your week. Take a moment to quietly relax, reflect and retreat.
