David Hinton in Mountain Home (New Directions) speaking of Tu Fu. (712-770) … thank you Bernie Arndt

A Christmas thought….

“….in exile in this world of Rivers and Mountains,
but also the exile we all share in a wilderness
cosmology of relentless transformation – for we
are, like all things, just fleeting forms already on
their way somewhere else.  Poised between
black despair and exquisite beauty, his was a
geologic perspective, a vision of the human
cast against the elemental sweep of the universe”.
