KEGON RETURNS TO DELUSIONS 鐵笛倒吹 語十二

If a gentle flower
falls from its branch
do you mourn its departure.
The fool attempts
to place it back in the bush,
the wise one waits
for another flower to appear.

Each is the same flower
but how will the fool
become wise.


A reflection on case 52 of the Iron Flute.
