In a few minutes I was at the meeting place, with a few minutes to spare. I cracked the book open and notice the following words of Prince Hakutsu when he visited the caverns of Miho on a journey to the land of Ki:
Caverns, that last an eternity,
are still here even now,
but the men who dwelled in them
could not last forever.
O pine that stands
at the caverns' entrance.
Looking at you is like coming face to face
with the men of ancient times.
"Same here," I thought, holding this used book:
"Reading these lines is like coming face to face
with the minds that wrote them
and the minds that read them since ancient times."
If you have a few minutes to kill, notice the poetry of reality around you: this ordinary perfection has been here all along.
