Zen East, Zen West

Zen East, Zen West

“When I talk about the east,

you go into the west.

When I talk about the west,

you go into the east,”

quoted the Zen Master.

“It’s as if you’ve been reading Kipling’s poems

over an old campfire.

Concentrate.

Hear what I’m saying, now.

This time, this place.

Here on this park bench

with a view of all these mountains.”

 

-Dick Allen
