923. The story of a saint

Is he a saint?

Catch him,

Strike him,

Kill him,

Since he is not

Adding anything

To our world’s

Practical and real life.


Ah, he is gone!

He is dead!

His silent gaze

We miss so deeply.

His pure life

We miss so badly.

His heart of compassion

We miss so sadly.

His soul of illumination

We miss so unmistakably.

Alas, he is gone!

No more our saint is with us.
