Cleaning up

Yutang Lin

Mind set on sufferings of beings, preoccupied with Dharma activities,
No leisure to clean up and decorate my living quarters for comforts.
Accumulated dusts and junks of twenty years once swept away,
A moment of leisure eventually encountered in this floating life.


It has been twenty years since we moved into this residence.
So much writing done over the years, accumulated papers high.
Congested all over the place, burden of possession rose to the rim.
Now after cleaning up relaxation and ease permeated the air.
