Every day, priests minutely examine the Law
And endlessly chant complicated sutras.
Before doing that, though, they should learn
How to read the love letters sent by the wind
and rain, the snow and moon.


-- from Ikkyu and the Crazy Cloud Anthology: A Zen Poet of Medieval Japan, by Ikkyu / Translated by Sonya Arutzen
Poetry Chaikhana | Ikkyu (Ikkyu Sojun) - Every day, priests minutely examine the Law

I have posted this before, but here it is again.
only one koan matters
you


-- from Crow With No Mouth: Fifteenth Century Zen Master Ikkyu, Translated by Stephen Berg
Poetry Chaikhana | Ikkyu (Ikkyu Sojun) - only one koan matters
