The Secret of Old Age

Old Man at Leisure

Sacred or secular
manners and conventions
make no difference to him

Completely free
leaving it all to heaven
he seems a simpleton

No one catches
a glimpse inside
his mind

this old man
all by himself
between heaven and earth

Muso Soseki 
Poet, 1275-1351, Japanese
