Jules’ “nd 5.25 Fractured Traveler 5p – Jules Pens Some Gems…”

Fractured Traveler

flower moon
skylark’s melody
wistful tune

opal stone
talisman, to pet
reassure

existence
with each passing breath
time passes

slow pilgrim
walking; a deranged
dull silence

rice bowl hung
on a course rope belt
unfulfilled

flower moon
skylark’s melody
wistful tune

Miles to trod with staff in hand, course hooded robe, barely sandaled feet. An un-monk, un-nun, under duress, stressed yet obligated to attempt to gain sanity by following a saint’s trail through an unfamiliar territory. A vow of silence ensures only internal arguments with oneself. Repeat, “it is the journey…” Eventually the destination will be achieved. Whether the goal of enlightenment is reached will be debatable.
