Haiku Play: T-Combo


For his morning tea
A monk takes utter silence
With chrysanthemums.

For their tea, chrysanthemums
take utter silence with a monk
and a monk with utter silence.

Utter silence takes
Chrysanthemums with a monk
And a monk with chrysanthemums,

And chrysanthemums
With utter silence
Are taken by a monk.
