Deep Nature of Life
The five basic colors
can be made into countless combinations
to perplex the eyes.
The five basic tones
can be made into infinite compositions
to bewilder the ears.
The five basic flavors
can be made into numerous stimulations
to confuse the tongue.
The pursuit of worldly pleasures
can make the mind wide and uncontrollable.
The one who sees the deep nature of life
would rather embrace
the simple subtle essence of life.
