White Heron Arc II

White crane slices through vast yellow, white egret scythes clear azure. White heron arcs through cloud peaks, white swan slashes duckweed carpets.

Fissure waves split mountains to dust. Radiant dipper shines through heavens open seam.An immortal wind takes blossoms from the trees, ocean breaks into dragon rage waves.

Over the idle tide silver strands unfurl, and unfurl from silver arcs.Across numerous grains of sand a swordsman’s feet slide.
