Heron Lodge an Ancient Classical Poem by Wang Zhihuan

I wanted to get a quick post up while I have internet.. Min is being quite fickle as of late. I am quite honored to share a poem from the Ancients this one from the Tangshi an anthology of 320 poems from the Golden Age of Chinese poetry. The poem is about 3500 years old and speaks volumes on many levels. What do you feel when you read this classic piece from the distant past?

Tangshi VII. 1. (236)
王 之 渙 Wang Zhihuan
At Heron Lodge

Mountains cover the white sun,
And oceans drain the golden river;
But you widen your view three hundred miles
By going up one flight of stairs.

Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two.. I also would like to thank you for being you and being the positive change our world so needs. I will be catching up on your blogs and comments over the next couple of days as internet becomes available..” They are working on it” or so I have been advised lol.
