the monk's fourth wall

are you a monk?
    really
          really a monk?


I've got a bowl, a robe,
I pray

last night
I really shaved my head -
but can one tonsure a persona?




please accept this ever so subtle nudging of the fourth wall  - some days...the fourth wall is all I got

and yet one sneeze shatters...

  3. Can one? By addressing the prompt, you prompt more thought. Clever, clever monk. Always leading, teaching.

  5. Ollie,

    I am certain that the monk is in his heart,leading the life which befits his calling. The long robes and the other signs, are simply a reminder. His heart is hidden and only he can truly know...
    I think though that, the monk can have many days of doubt and wonderment, just as those who have a bad hair day:)
    Best Wishes,
    Eileen

  7. Hmmm? Can you tonsure a persona? Can you tuna fish? And are you REALLY a monk?!!

  8. The outward does not make the inner person. But you know that.

  11. Hey, sometimes in life you need something to hold you up. A Tire Old Monk. A Fourth Wall, what ever works.
