my haiku. Perhaps I am unclear > on what zen really is but I know I am trying to achieve it in my personal life. > In this haiku the person has achieved zen by the " finding space in an empty cup." ....................... Here is a bit on Zen and Haiku http://haikuandhappiness.blogspot.com/2007/01/zen-and-haiku.html Oh dear, you choose a difficult subject.

after a week of sitting at Greystone in Riverdale in the Bronx, we stopped and had some tea together before going our various ways. I am a tea addict but for some reason I didn't have my tea cup. A friend of mine gave me hers, and as I drank the tea, the cup which was quite old and whose old cracked glaze showed the traces of many years of tea drinking, became for me the most beautiful tea cup I had ever seen. I see it now. A commercial tea cup with tiny blue generic flowers, and thin stems with leaves like tea leaves, a solid old used tea cup.
