Ithaca 684: EVERYTHING CHANGES, EVERYTHING REMAINS – Germain Droogenbroodt / Translation Germain Droogenbroodt – Stanley Barkan

 
Painting by Lo Ch’ing, Taiwan
 
 
EVERYTHING CHANGES,
EVERYTHING REMAINS
 
The nameless is the origin
of heaven and earth
 
─Lao-Tse
 
 
So much has happened,
but nothing has changed
 
only apparently
everything seems different from before,
and there is hardly anything or nothing
 
any more recognizable,
although the Road, the winding path
that leads to enlightenment, is unchanged,
and continues to exist, but for more
than only the eye.
 
 
Translation Germain Droogenbroodt – Stanley Barkan
from “The Ephemeral Flower of Time”
