I did not go to Tian Tai Mountains to lead a hermit’s life. I just wanted to be alone to meditate, and to meditate means life. I set up my laboratory in the mountains, observing what was happening all around me, searching for the truth of the universe, while fighting the shadow of time. When making “Cloud Mirror”, I put a mirror on the ground, then I let the silkworms spray silk on it. The mirror reflects the blue sky, and the silk grows just like clouds do. Meanwhile, I sat aside and meditated. I wrote this poem:

Cloud

Loop of silk,
Trace of breath,
Floating across the sky,
Burden of lightness.
Bright Cloud Mirror,
Reflecting the blood and breath of earth,
Ladders of clouds emerge abruptly,
Looking down on the stress and the crowds of the city
Clouds
Meet or break,
And beyond their deep
The silver blue sky.
