U is for Un

Mariusz Kubik
I returned for today's post to the Poetry Foundation website and found Ko Un, a Korean poet. He has been both a Buddhist monk and a political prisoner, and now works for peace and reunification of his homeland. 

Asking The Way

You fools who ask what god is
should ask what life is instead.
Find a port where lemon trees bloom.
Ask about places to drink in the port.
Ask about the drinkers. 
Ask about the lemon trees.
Ask and ask until nothing's left to ask.
