Don’t know what else there is to say

//Don’t know what else there is to say

Don’t know what else there is to say

Someone reminded me today about this poem that Leonard Cohen wrote about his Zen teacher, entitled « Roshi »:

I never really understood
what he said
but every now and then
I find myself
barking with the dog
or bending with the irises
or helping out
in other little ways.

Rare and precious words.
Don’t know what else there is to say.
