As the rivers solidified
and the mountains shifted,
his* mind moved
and the keaves rustled in the wind.
Like ice drifting on a river
at the end of winter
he* faded into emptiness
as he moved with Tao.
-- Jos Stabbert
* Who is the poet referring to here?
In 19 "he" seems to be the sage or the ego.
But is "his" in 18 referrencing the same "he?"
