Where Will His Search Lead Him

Prose poem

For what is the young man searching
In such an intense and serious way
Why does he just sit gazing out the window day after day
Staring as if something momentous is approaching
Rather than starting on his quest
If indeed that is for what he is preparing
Looking for a sign perhaps
Or awaiting a companion
Is meditation part of his preparation
Will reflection give him a sense of direction
