Blackett's Ridge-9897-72View West From Blackett’s Ridge Across Sabino Canyon — Image by kenne

The path to Han-shan’s place is laughable,

A path, but no sign of cart or horse.

Converging gorges — hard to trace their twists

Jumbled cliffs — unbelievably rugged.

A thousand grasses bend with dew,

A hill of pines hums in the wind.

And now I’ve lost the shortcut home,

Body asking shadow, how do you keep up?

— from Cold Mountain Poems by Gary Snyder
