Follow the Bouncing Ball

Hekiganroku 80 concludes:
The monk later asked Tosu, "What is the meaning of a ball bouncing on swift-flowing water?"

Tosu said, "Moment by moment, it flows on without stopping."
Just try to keep it still, and you'll go nuts.  Try to keep an eye on it, and you won't have much success, either.

What to do?

Bouncy bouncy bouncy, on and on and on it (all) goes, and where it stops, nobody knows.
