A philosopher searches for meaning.
With purpose round a lamp, beaming.
Ouroboros – in infinity trails.
Accidentally on purpose swept off the rails.
A shepherd meditating in a cave.
A long beard with no razor to shave.
No knowledge of book or pen.
A mystic knows the meaning.
Shines light on some, while dreaming.
Solitude. Guiding friend to the seer.
Accidentally on purpose, people appear.
A humble one, citing quiet truth.
Piercing eyes – a little uncouth.
Who has knowledge of future times?
Speaks softly, oft in rhymes.
