CHIYONO'S ENLIGHTENMENT POEM


In this way and that I have tried to save the old pail 
Since the bamboo strip was weak and about to break 
Until at last the bottom fell out. 
No more water in the pail! 
No more moon in the water!   

 -- Chiyono 

Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.
