The Zen Master and the Child

“The wheels on the bus go round and round,

round and round,

round and round.

The wheels on the bus go round and round. . . . ”

is the child’s first mantra,

the Zen Master said,

drawing an ensŌ in the air with his right index finger,

as if he was painting in water

on a new Buddha Board

just arrived this morning on his doorstep

from Amazon.com.

“Round and round, round and round.

The wheels on the bus go round and round,

all through the town.”
