The Secret Bag

Below is a short verse from my diary “Songs of the Mind”.

In a little mocking voice, she asked,
“What can you give me, o venerated monk?”

“Ask my daughter, what do you want?
You can get anything, but you have to ask for it.”

“O! but your bag seems empty!
What can it give me!”

“Ask for it.”
“Then, Give me that bag of yours,”
“My empty sack? Is that all?”
“Yes, I want to unearth the secrets that it holds,”

“Yes, secrets of carrying an empty bag and yet be full of riches,”

“O, my daughter give up everything, and you would find that, which I have in my sack, forevermore!”
“O, certainly!”
