Clear in the blue, the moon!

by Ryuzan

English version by Lucien Stryk and Takashi Ikemoto
Original Language Japanese

Clear in the blue, the moon!
Icy water to the horizon,
Defining high, low. Startled,
The dragon uncoils about the billows.

-- from Zen Poetry: Let the Spring Breeze Enter, Translated by Lucien Stryk / Translated by Takashi Ikemoto
