Got a poem from a dharma bro

 The Woodcutter’s View
early morning warmth spreads the thud and whack of my axe
marking the village hours like a temple bell.
stopping for tea 
we sip in silence
       not caring when we pick up our tools.

oh yes, things do exist
as when a shout at the base of a mountain
is a soft echo in a distant valley.

I hope that you enjoy a sweet New Year of the Fire Rooster - Britton Pyland
