CLIFFSIDE AGAIN: HEKIGANROKU CASE 5

HSUEH FENG’S GRAIN OF RICE

It is not the seeing
but the looking that
will drive you to the edge.
It is easy to see, you
hardly need eyes for that task,
but to look is beyond seeing.
Do you think this
a mere grain of rice?
Look closely, do you see
the entire world?
Do not describe
what you see, describe
only what is there
without words, for words
are incapable of providing
a description of everything
even when held in your hand.
