This beautiful moon.

There was a Zen master who lived in a small hut at he base of a mountain. One evening while he was away on a walk, a thief sneaked into the hut only to find there was nothing to steal. The Zen master returned and saw him within his hut. "You have traveled a long way to visit me," He said to the thief, "and you should not return empty handed. Please take my clothes." The confused thief took the clothes and ran off. The Zen master sat naked outside his hut and looked up at the moon. "Poor fellow, I wish I could have given him this beautiful moon."
