Wander



'Be a wanderer.'
~Jesus, Gnostic Gospel of Thomas
Ten thousand ardent pilgrims
follow the temple way.
But I wander off-trail.
Getting lost is my journey.
I don't seem to arrive
anywhere but here.
I am like mist in a forest.
Tell me when you get there, friend:
Is anything more lovely than a pear blossom
falling on a stream that weaves
among mossy boulders, liquid
mirror mirroring the liquid soul
and whispering,
'you Are the path...'
