#poem No Saying

(An Adaption from Zen Monk Royokan)

No path leads to an awakening;
No path leads to a destination;

When we see a glimmer
And head straight for it,
It recedes and recedes.

When we seek truth with our heads,
Even if we find good ethics,
We have taken a wrong path.

I cannot say how my path is;
When I describe it,
It falls to pieces.
