The afternoon swam by
like a giant fish
with red translucent scales.
In its stillness
the palm trees were copper
and coconuts round
with the clanging of a gong; my eyes
in the orange sifting of oboes.
~Wang Phui Nam (1935-)*

Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.*
Taoist regard the reality of imagination and of dreams as no less real than what is usually called realty by contrast.
