A Longhouse Birdhouse: WANG AN-SHIH ~

Wandering Out With A Full Moon To
Eightfold-Integrity River

Thoughts turned far away from you,
confusion rife, I can’t sleep. Finally

I rise, gaze up into bright stars, then
saddle a horse and wander the road

east, thinking rivers and mountains
might ease my worries. I know you

are no dinner. Come: we’ll ladle out

clouds together here at their source.

Yang Yongliang’s “From the New World”


And look again, at  the  Anthropocene renderings of mountains, cliffs, and rivers once drawn and painted by ancient Chinese artists who experienced them as going on forever.

Vermont (a story) by Katie Yates | Cowbird


clouds, in gathering, sun arises instantly, orange satin, white silk, a throne covering the mountains, a mist, frog-song in the evening, birds amongst flags, the archery range, the ladies-in-waiting, so pretty and the sacred texts & songs, the journey across mountain ranges from select to anonymous, heart-sung, immediate, what we know instantly, and instantly again.  — Katie Yates

Bamboo and Plum Blossom: Li Po (Li Bai-701-762)

Summer Day in the Mountains

Too lazy to wave the white plume fan,

stripped to the waist in the green wood’s mist,

I loose my headcloth, hang it on a stony wall,

bare my top knot for pine winds to riffle

 – Li Po (Li Bai-701-762)
