koan

I've been taking on small writing assignments from people.
Zack's task: a koan.
Below are my two attempts.


"Share your ice cream with me."
"I have no ice cream. The bowl is empty."
"You can give me all your ice cream, but you can't make that bowl empty."


"I tried to write a koan.
I failed.
I gave up.
I succeeded."

Ah, the delightful emptiness of koans.

You should read Basho's haiku.
