Poem delighting in simplicity

A Korean master expresses delight in simplicity in this way.

 

Unaffected by the passage of time

I remain bright and quiet while I sit.

A bowl of porridge,

A plate of wild greens,

And a cup of tea:

I smile.

Meandering the web, I discovered this poem on a Buddhist teacher’s website that included an article The life of a zen buddhist nun in South Korea.
