My Mind Is Like The Autumn Moon, Clear And Bright
Nadja Van Ghelue
Painting - Ink On Rice Paper
This calligraphy shows the complete four line poem ' My Mind Is Like The Autumn Moon' by the Tang poet Han Shan, the Chinese Zen hermit poet called Cold Mountain. The large calligraphic characters of the first line show an unimpeded brush flow, making the characters stand free and unhindered like the Mind expanding in space.
I love this poem and so do many Zen practitioners. From the first time I heard My mind is like the autumn moon, I wanted to brush it. Here is a full cursive calligraphic version of this Zen Mind song.
You can read the entire poem in The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain, a marvelous translation of Han Shan's poetry by Red Pine
My heart is like the autumn moon
perfectly bright in the deep green pool
nothing can compare with it
you tell me how it can be explained
The first line 'My Mind Is Like The Autumn Moon', is also available as single calligraphy at:
