Observing an Ox, I Reflect
Poem By Kim Yangshik
Leaving is not simply leaving
and staying is not simply staying.
People and beasts and even plants;
each stays as if leaving
and leaves as if staying.
There is no heaven without earth,
neither is there earth without heaven.
All created as one in the beginning
remain as one endlessly.
no one stays without leaving
or leaves without staying.
