Haiku by Jesus from the Gospel of Thomas

The Kingdom of the Father
is spread across the land –
Men do not see it.

Thanks to Gordon Gaippe for noting how this statement by Jesus, as recorded in the Gospel of Thomas, Verse No. 113, can be viewed as a Zen haiku. For an essay based on this teaching by Jesus, click on Living in the Kingdom of Heaven Now.
