Zen Master Advice

“ ‘Ochitsuite!’ exclaimed”

 

“Ochitsuite!” exclaimed

the Zen Master,

“Relax!” and then

“Wakaru!” which means

“to understand, to see, to follow,”

followed by his whispered

“shunkan,”

a moment, a second, an instant,

his words

holding us still, fascinated.

 

-Dick Allen
