AN ANCIENT MNASTERY IN THE REMOTE MOUNTA...
A broken ancient bell is spinning a broken cobweb and has trapped one butterfly, one blue moth and also several small winged insects
A Monachal Cloud
Freedom is farther away than far, But just beside you. --Sanyuan forewords
A day is just like the sun From the sky, With flying birds, and Clouds in many uncanny ways.
