德 Man of High Virtue , Active Volcano Masaya Nicaragua Dec 6 2005

竹影掃階塵不動 죽영소계진부동
月輪穿沼水無痕 월륜천소수무흔
水流壬急境常靜 수류임급경상정
花落雖頻意自閑 화락수빈의자한

No dust arises
though the shadow of the moon sweeps the step stone.
No ripple remains
though full moon perforates a hole over the pond..
Edge of the stream stays calm
though the current in the middle runs fast.
A plant never looses its serenity
though its flowers wax and wane incessantly..
