water ceremony


A group in white paper clothes gather in a profound silence
where stillness and flight intersect


It resembles a scene from two thousand years ago, when oracles appeared in Greek temples
Time dwelled in open space, along with density, and foretold the course of life
On that day the sun set loose a shaft of light to the heavens
The roaring sea breaking on the shore carried the heat
Could the sky recognize the murmuring of some invisible messenger?


Transcending body, spirit, water, heart, time and space, the gods dwell in a modest mountain 
The sound echoes through the forests and rides in the hearts of visitors
There was an infinite chasm there
