Sinking like a rock in the sea

by Feng-kan (Big Stick)

English version by Red Pine (Bill Porter)
Original Language Chinese

Sinking like a rock in the sea
drifting through the Three Worlds
poor ethereal creature
ever immersed in scenes
until a flash of lightning shows
life and death are dust in space

-- from The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain, Translated by Red Pine
