Enough Hiding

It’s time to show my cards.
I know you didn’t know
I am not Osojnik but Master Greenhead.
Right now I am disclosing secret wisdom,
without notes and without words.
Man is a lake reflecting the moon.
The moon in the sky is not what is real
but the water reflecting the moon.
If you’ve got stomach cramps, this is living proof
that you are Buddha.
One of my teachers is a hole in the blue sky.
Another is a yellow walnut tree nestling the sun
in the square meter of a green window.
I am glad nobody is bugging me with stupid questions
(myself excluded, sadly).
