Tianyi

‘A monk said, “I have just arrived here. I ask the master to expound the Dharma.”
Tianyi said, “The birds call in the forest. The fish swim in the deep water.”‘ (Zen’s Chinese Heritage)

Again with the birds and the fish. What can they teach us? Perhaps Tianyi should have asked the monk if he had had his breakfast.
