I know perfection is a chance effect Of uninflected being, that to reflect Will break the mirror that preserves your face . . .

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Know all things to be like this:

A mirage, a cloud castle,

A dream, an apparition,

Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen.

 

Know all things to be like this:

As the moon in a bright sky

In some clear lake reflected,

Though to that lake the moon has never moved.

 

Know all things to be like this:

As an echo that derives

From music, sounds and weeping,

Yet in that echo is no melody.

 

Know all things to be like this:

As a magician makes illusions

Of horses, oxen, carts, and other things,

Nothing is as it appears.”
