Zen Hunting

Zen Hunting

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Zen Hunting

Having failed to obtain enlightenment

In more conventional ways

The once observant Buddhist Monk

Chose to discard the spice fragranced robe

To disregard the frowns and pointing fingers

And take up hunting

Thereafter, in his quest for seemingly even more

Elusive pleasures

He wandered aimlessly, until by chance

In the guise of a wandering Fish Monger

He stumbled upon an aesthetically pleasing graduate

Of similar and significantly satisfying disposition

Whereupon he settled down and grew accustomed

To domesticated bliss

This is a great depiction of the various ways life can serve up something that we weren't expecting, but that actually ends up being the best answer. I love the originality of your story, telling an age-old tale of how there's apparently a master crafter in control of the direction of things! (((HUGS)))

Yes I will thanks.
What a lovely story this tells. A monk changing his life totally and then finding someone to share it with....and being happy. We all find our happiness in different ways, don't we? Sometimes the road to happiness is a winding one, but what is meant to be will be. I liked this a lot. Lydi**
