Daily Life

“What I do every day
Is nothing special:
I simply stumble around .
What I do is not thought out,
Where I go is unplanned.
No matter who triers to leave their mark,
The hills and dales are not impressed.
Collecting firewood and carrying water
Are prayers that reach the gods.”

– Layman P’ang
