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!”
