The Butterfly

Zen is like the butterfly,
That refuses to settle on your hand.
No net is fine enough to catch it,
No trick clever enough to fool it –
But be seated in your garden,
Enjoy the rays of sun that fall on your head,
Or the rain,
And it will land of its own accord,
And all its beauty will be yours.
Until you try and grasp it –
Then you will only find dust,
Between your fingertips.
