Passing through sparse sunshine, jumpamong woods

Feel like golden shining “shit”, fallon my face, body and grass.

Anywhere

The happiness of life can be found anywhere

But always being interrupted, shining ceaselessly

They exists beyond “my” knowledge and recognition

Only need to understand how to appreciate it

Such as appreciate nature and art

Why is it charming

It will let you forget “self”

Appreciate, so is appreciator

When you lost in it, you lost for words

Just as what you have seen and thought, I will not disturb.

“Stay a while, you are so beautiful.”

—— Faust
