We Will Move Mountains

A golden shovel poem from:

“When you investigate mountains thoroughly, This is the work of the mountains.“

The Mountains and Waters Sutra by Dogen (translated by Shohaku Okumura)

We Will Move Mountains

written and illustrated by Monty Vern

The question is not where or when;


Query there and then, but we must investigate

Our role in the now; seeing through these stone mountains

Density, and lighting up the deep oceans’ darkness thoroughly;

Exhausting each probability, this





The “we” in us; Together we will move mountains.

Be well,
