Wrapped, surrounded by ten thousand mountains

by Yuan Mei

English version by J. P. Seaton
Original Language Chinese

Wrapped, surrounded by ten thousand mountains,
Cut off, no place to go....
Until you're here, there's no way to get here.
Once you're here, there's no way to go.

-- from The Poetry of Zen: (Shambhala Library), Edited by Sam Hamill / Edited by J. P. Seaton
