Seeking Perfect Places

Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, California, United States of America
There are places
In this world
So breathtaking
And exquisitely

Words cannot
Describe them
Even a photograph
Provides barely a whisper
Of the truth

I seek out these places
Experience them
They are the greatest teachers
Of the true perfection
Of the Dao
Of The Way

I learn more
From a few moments
In these places
Than in book study
Or listening to
The words of masters
