Just Done

by Yuan Mei

English version by J. P. Seaton
Original Language Chinese

A month alone behind closed doors
forgotten books, remembered, clear again.
Poems come, like water to the pool
               up and out,
from perfect silence

-- from A Drifting Boat: Chinese Zen Poetry, Edited by J. P. Seaton / Edited by Dennis Maloney
