Cold Mountains

Ball point pen and pencil on paper, 2003

寒山有一宅
宅中无间隔
六门左右通
堂中见天碧
房房虚索索
东壁打西壁
其中一物无
"Cold Mountain is a house
Without beans or walls.
The six doors left and right are open
The hall is sky blue.
The rooms all vacant and vague
The east wall beats on the west wall
At the center nothing..." - Han Shan
