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

Painting by Lo Ch’ing, Taiwan
The nameless is the origin
of heaven and earth
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”
