Seeking Searcher

All the knowledge

All the wisdom 

All the world 

Within your grasp


To see the unseen 

To think the unthinkable 

To feel the unfelt

Within your essence 


The seeker seeks what is sought 

The searcher searches the searched

The seeking searcher finds

that which is within

        A fine write L. I'm seeking or searching for a G.Pig. One escaped from the cage! (not really, they are all safe)

        • LAWLESS

          Thanks G.P.D.

          Your G.Pigs are probably too plump to go far! You have nothing to worry about if they escape.

          Man this is good... Thank you for sharing.

          • LAWLESS

            Thank you so much.

            It is hard to differentiate seeker and searcher. I believe the seeker sees what is ahead, and the searcher physically searches.

            I Love the distinction between one searching spiritually an another physically. Excellent piece.

                Thank you kind sir. I appreciate that you go back to my meanderings.

                Oddly, I came across a poem that I haven’t read in a while today. It’s by Seng-ts’an (maybe). The title is “On Trust in the Heart”. I believe that you’ll enjoy it.

                • Neville

                  thank you.. I shall try to locate that poem, or maybe you could point me in the right direction... I know the 16th century wandering scribe, poet and philosopher Wang Tsu....
