(Based on a Zen Koan)
Many hours passed in meditation.
One thought eludes the student.
Gets up, walks, climbs the platform
Where Sensei sits, watching them.
"Master, I have a question?"
Sensei nods, looks at the student.
"What is enlightenment?"
Student looks up, stunned
from the bottom of the platform Sensei knocked him from.
Another student waits in his lotus position
Before leaning forward to whisper.
"Why do you not bow?"
The student shakes his head, then smiles, bows,
And is enlightened.
Peace and love,
