the sound of one hand clapping

pondering the koan
does not help me go to sleep.
I immediately reach the conclusion, the answer
it is both no sound, and all the sound in the universe
an incredible din of silence,
a serene and tranquil scream
Upon which
the universe collapses, falls apart

and is reborn.

The sound of one hand clapping
is a sound that is one with all
that reverberates within our souls
unknown of and unknowable.
It possesses the power
of creation, of destruction
empowerment, beautification, bastardization,

and really, everything.

“Bullshit” you say?
Well I say “nay”!
It is not bullshit,
it is a koan.
