A MONKISH RIDDLE

A MONKISH RIDDLE

Like an old chestnut*
The tree in the forest falls
Silent? Who’s to say?

~~~~~ ~ ~~~~~

* “An old chestnut (mainly British). If you describe something that is said or written as an old chestnut or a hoary old chestnut, you mean that it has been repeated so often that it is no longer interesting.” (Free Dictionary; Collins COBUILD Idioms Dictionary, 3rd ed. © HarperCollins Publishers 2012.)

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. A fallen tree leaves not a hole in the forest, but a thousand plants to take its place.
