Between the wind and the wind,
countless waves.
Between the mountains and the seas,
the clouds, and the rains.
Between the body and the mind,
the eyebrows and in-sights.
Between dreaming and awakening,
river blues of canal dreams.

AWAKENING IN SPRING

驚蟄

First pentad: The peaches begin to blossom.

Second pentad: Orioles sing clearly.

Last pentad: Eagles are transformed into doves.

一候桃始華,

二候倉庚鳴,

三候鷹化為鳩。

Jīngzhé, 驚蟄, is the 3rd of the 24 solar terms (節氣) in the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around March 5 and ends around March 20.

The word 驚蟄 means the awakening of hibernating insects. Traditional Chinese folklore says that during Jingzhe, thunderstorms will wake up the hibernating insects, which implies that the weather is getting warmer.
