‘When all thoughts’ by Ryokan

When all thoughts

by Ryokan

English version by John Stevens
Original Language Japanese

When all thoughts
Are exhausted
I slip into the woods
And gather
A pile of shepherd’s purse.

Like the little stream
Making its way
Through the mossy crevices
I, too, quietly
Turn clear and transparent.
