Past Grandmaster

Dragon Ascending to Heaven

Lu  Mountain

I climbed west on Incense Cloud Peak. 

South I saw the spray-filled falls

Dropping for ten thousand feet

Sounding in a hundred gorges,

Suddenly as if lightning shone,

Strange as if light-wet rainbows lifted.

I thought the Milky Way had shattered,

Scattering stars through clouds, downwards.


Looking up an even greater force.

Nature's powers are so intense.

The Cosmic Wind blows there without stop.

The river's moon echoes back the light

Into vortices where waters rush.

On both sides the clear walls were washed,

By streams of pearl broken into mist,

By clouds of foam whitening over rock.


Let me reach those Sublime Hills

Where peace comes to the quiet heart.

No more need to find the Magic Cup.

I'll wash the dust, there,  from my face,

And live in those regions that I love,

Separated  from the Human World.

In fact Audemars Piguet is just down the street as an official sponsor of replica watches Art Basel. Miami, in many ways, is big enough for them both. I never actually made it to Art Basel this replica watches year. I probably could have, but that would involve waking up rolex replica early enough to do so - a feat of effort made unlikely because in Miami there doesn't seem to be a legally required replica watches uk time to stop serving alcohol, and the party goes all night. There is enough art replica watches uk elsewhere. The people, the places, the watches. Miami is a great city to be voyeur, and probably a better city to be a participant if replica watches you are well-connected or wealthy enough. If I thought LA was status-conscious with its ubiquitous mansions and Maseratis - Miami adds to that the replica watches presence of mega-yachts (which just happen to be "parked" in a line like automobiles rolex replica uk outside the hotel in a canal).
