Ko Un: A New Way

A New Way

Now go sinking into the sea.
To the whales, the sharks and the shrimps,
all the way down to the darkest deep.
There you’ll have many companions!

Don’t go treading in Buddha’s footsteps
      nothing like that
just sink into the sea.

Translated by Young-Moo Kim and Brother Anthony of Taizé
