A description of the experience
SUN EMERGES AND SINKS AWAY
Sun emerges and sinks away without cease,
living its lifetime of seasons, nothing like humankind:
its spring isn’t our spring,
its summer isn’t our summer,
its autumn isn’t our autumn,
its winter isn’t our winter.
Drifting back to rest in its lake of four seas,
gazing everywhere - what shall we call such a blessing?
All our joy is
joy in its six dragons:
their motion moves
hearts the same way.
Why not lead that yellow splendor right down here among us?
