Huangshan after Snow
Over seventy summits, mapped and named, obscured by snow.
Vastly high, to rising sky, lined up, a thousand passes!
Weaponed suits, in furs, on armoured horse, no easy passes.
Battled armies halt: So huge their ride! How far to go!?
Which immortals built those paths where only birds can fly?
So high, so far away, yet reachable in just a day.
Life-affirming, miracle pines peak over clouds seas's way.
Nine Dragon Waterfall dashed to a hundred rivers.
Li Bai brush pen flourished into Dream Flower Pen, a tree-soft point.
Yellow Emperor made dan inside this Taoist sphere.
Full of beauty is this Buddha's lotus seat spread here?
Brightness Apex, it's impossible to get to the point.
Half way to heaven, heart-vast, up-down, majestic, vision not finite,
No limit, far, inside, vast, unseen but known, profound.
Base Earth energy running millions of years unbound,
Only being here I now know the universe's light.
