“The autumn colors of the thousand peaks

are dyed with seasonal rain;

How could the hard rock on the mountain

follow along with the wind?”

(Page 387)

 

Hermit Poet’s Comments: Everything is impermanent; the question is at what rate.

How long does a leaf last?

How long does a mountain last?

Climate change is causing the natural world to be out of balance. 

How long will the earth last?
