180. the guru’s one-million haiku

while the guru was more famous for his koans, he also wrote haiku. they were very personal, each evoking a specific moment in his path to #zenlightenment.

one day, the guru showed some of his haiku to the banker. the banker was confused and said, “these haiku seem like gibberish.”

the guru burst into tears. he grabbed his haiku and ran off into the desert, where he vowed to never share any of them with anyone else for the rest of his life.

but you can read all one-million here.
