Bone Of Space

     - Zen Poems by  Master Seung Sahn 

Quiet night

Sitting silently in the mountain cabin

          in complete stillness.

Moonlight fills all space.

Why does the wind from the west

Shake the forest

          A bird shrieks.

The sound slowly fades

As it flies through the cold sky.
