Dove Haiku – revisited

Alf, a young man seeking wisdom about the arts, found Zen, an ancient and wise sage, a hermit, who lived in a reed hut on the side of a steep valley in the Nepalese Mountains.


The young man gave the wise man an offering of berries, and a cloak made of Himalayan goat hair.


The wise man accepted the gifts and settled down upon his hut’s threshold.


The young man saw that it was time to ask his question.


Alf “What’s a ‘Haiku’, Zen?”


Zen “When a dove is on your roof

That is what you hear!”
