Even though I'm in Kyoto

Even though I'm in Kyoto,
when the kookoo cries,
I long for Kyoto.
- Issa

How reluctantly
the bee emerges from deep
within the peony
- Basho

Look directly!
What is this?
Look in this manner
And you won't be fooled!
- Bassui

Good and evil have no self nature;
Holy and unholy are empty names;
In front of the door is the land of stillness and quiet;
Spring comes, grass grows by itself.
- Master Seung Sahn
