Zen Master

by Julian Medinger

"Master, what is the meaning of life?"
"To seek inner peace."
"How does one attain inner peace?"
"In the sound of one hand clapping" A long time passed.
"Master, what is the sound of one hand clapping?"
"Clouds move across sky
Song of wind in trees disturbed
By stupid question"
