Wu-Men: "Ten Thousand Flowers in Spring"

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.

"Ten Thousand Flowers in Spring" by Wu-Men, from The Englightened Heart: An Anthology of Sacred Poetry, edited by Stephen Mitchell. © Harper Perennial, 1993.
