Feng Shui for Poetry

August 18, 2009

Last week we experienced another beautiful sunset and this time it is looking from our terrace in a “Chambres d’Hotes” (French for Bed and Breakfast”) called “Les Courtines” high up in the mountains of Montreal Les Sources in the south of France (www.lescourtines.com) where we had a few days of lovely stay.

Looking at these layers of mountains as the sun is setting, one cannot but appreciate the Chinese saying, “There are mountains outside mountains” 山外有山 and feels humbled by Nature’s Majestic and that no matter how clever Man can be, Man can always learn from Nature, but not only from Nature but from each other as well, for there is always someone who is better off and when one dies another will rise again, for the “ebb and flow” of a mountain range is like that of life and may be even of poetry!

Since the term Feng Shui has gone generic accordingly to some people and I have been labelled as a Feng Shui marketeer, may be we can call this “Feng Shui for Poetry” and promote it in a big big way to make lots and lots of money for me! Anyone wants to buy my poems, they are going cheap, like they are free. Danny? Marianna?
