Blogger – Paul Harper: Rivers & Mountains

Something simple for a tradition that’s all about surface simplicity .

There’s a saying in China : States come & go , rivers & mountains are unending .
Rivers & Mountains is also a genre of classical Chinese poetry . As you’d expect from a tradition that flourished for over a thousand years , it can get a little repetitive . But every now & then a poem of almost absurd simplicity will knock you silly .
