Still life oil painting of a small white cup, chopsticks and an orange pepper on a purple and red background.
Purple, Pepper, Cup Painting Seamus Berkeley

Does the spoon taste the soup?
A fool may live all her life
In the company of a master
And still miss the way.

The tongue tastes the soup.
If you are awake in the presence of a master
One moment will show you the way.
