The Man Who Lives on the Rock Strewn Lane

There is a man who lives
on a rock strewn lane,
who only eats grain,

who drinks only water,
only listens to sounds
that emanate from the east.

He has tamed his own beast.
He is of one eye,
all parts creating one whole,
unfolding without limit.

He sits with cupped hands,
knees bent, straight back,
focusing only on the way,
being that which is only in front of him,
stopping him from wandering…

just in case he’s wandering.

  1. One of the delights in life is to take the road less traveled. The man from the rock strewn lane clearly focusing only on that which is in front of him will have a dull uninteresting time. Silly man!

  2. I love this man…wandering in the mind is a huge adventure..and a sense of wonder…he feels content..at home..accepting himself and the world around…you can be surrounded by beaches and seas but be stuck in a cave..seems he has achieved the opposite?

Have some fun...
