Spring Flowers

Spring flowers, the autumn moon;

Summer breezes, winter snow.

If useless things do not clutter your mind,

You have the best season of your life.

A Lightning Flash Or A Dewdrop

straightstrikeTo what shall I compare this life of ours?
Even before I can say
it is like a lightning flash or a dewdrop
it is no more.
