old horse
yao feng

I saw this horse – elegant, strong
white of hair, pure by nature
grazing quietly on green grass
hooves up from time to time
or chasing off horseflies with its tail

simple, absolute, perfect creation
bright eyes show no sign of impurity
aside from grazing and galloping
it never concerns itself with a better life

tenderness grew in my heart
my loneliness touching this
in a world of changes
it is easier to like a beast
than it is to like a human
