A Vagabond and A Wizard

Settled for a few moments,
Waiting for the stream to move it further,
Carrying away the unfinished tale...

WHAT IMPORTANT IS U MANAGE TO CAPTURE THAT MOMMENT, LET IT GO AS U SAY, LIKE EVERYTHING IN LIFE, NOTHING IS FOREVER, ATTACHMENT IS THE ROOT OF UNHAPPYNESS, I TRUST THE STREAM, LIKE I TRUST THE DAYS/ NIGHTS, TO TAKE ME WHERE I WILL FIND THE OCEAN. LOVELY POEM, SO SHORT AND SO FULL OF EMOTIONS AND MEANINGS, A MASTER PIECE!
