No Need

Yutang Lin

Indeed rare to have the karmic connection to meet;
Get together and go separate ways nicely to enjoy.
Whence the energies to entangle in endless cycles?
Why bother to chase others into a dead-end street?


Our energies are very limited; entanglement is too ignorant. Encounters are due to karmic connections; meetings resemble dragonfly's touching water. Get together nicely and separate likewise; why need to chase into dead-end alley?
