Korea's premier poet, the former Buddhist monk Ko Un, presents 108 Zen poems. These "though-stopping Koan-like mental fire-cracker" (as Allen Ginsberg called them) let us taste, hear, smell, and see the absurdities and miracles of daily life. Accompanied by Ko Un's own brush-painting illustration, these small gems offer the gifts of laughter, tears and insight.
"Ko Un outfoxes the Old Masters and the Young poets both." —Gary Snyder
"These tiny, irreverent, compassionate, often humorous vignettes open to vast fields of understanding. Ko Un's poems live amid the democracy of all beings, looking directly and with great pleasure at this very moments bright-leaping essence." —Jane Hirshfield
