On Koan

A Poem by Coltron

From a traditional quote regarding koan that I particularly liked: "do not confuse the moon with the pointing finger." Something about being aware of the difference between the interpretation and the actual realization of koan. I really wanna

I look to the moon;
Do I see moon or finger

Alright, you have to post more stuff for me to read!!! ;0)
Ive been on here for awhile tonight and most of what I've read has given me a headache.
Cuss words, violence....just plain weird stuff!
I like your stuff though. Its interesting. Its not creepy like some of the things people put on here.
Im meaning this as a compliment, hope it comes across that way!

Oh, and I have to ask...what is Koan?

'tracing circles' I like that line much - I feel that is what the poem hangs on, giving it its full form.

A strong piece that can hold its own ground when threatened.

Uh oh... your haiku is too short. Yes, I'm only saying that because you mentioned it at rehearsal.

I do really like the haiku though, and it's a nice reaction to the quote.
