Poem:

Holding a stick and following the stream into deep clouds.

Peaks appear after peaks and steep rocks are along the roads.

I want to ask where my friend is living,

But all I see is an empty mountain.

In this painting, streams are flowing quietly in the valley and the towering trees stand steadily. It seems that the movement of the scholar, the little bridge, the flowing stream and flying birds break the tranquility of the valley. It implies that people yearn for freedom to pursue harmonious coexistence between human and nature.

題識款識:

循溪策杖入雲深

峰回路轉石嶙峋

欲問長沮耦耕處

空山猿鳴不見人

己亥健剛寫

鈐印:

朱文:蘇

白文:健剛長樂

朱文:心遊高遠

畫中空谷幽澗,古木參天。高仕策杖獨行,探访致友。作品中古松曲折有勢,山石刻畫層次豐富,人物、小橋、溪水、飛鳥之間的流動感似乎打破了山谷的寧靜。也同時暗示了人們向往心靈自由追求人與自然的和諧共處。
