"The poet only asks to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head. And it is his head that splits." G.K. Chesterton

Zen Koan Therapy

A careless monk experienced a fall,
Thus dislocating his fragile soul.

Reflecting on the apparent pain,
He puzzled over the insight that came.

For there was nothing beneath at all,
upon which one may even fall.

Reason then led him to finally state:
"There is no soul to dislocate."

This poem has been published in the New Lotus magazine.
