A poem

The Fool
Photo by Lili Popper on Unsplash

A traveler in a foreign land;

a trickster among foes and kings.

One can’t easily reprimand,

a tramp in search of peculiar things.

His appearance is a kaleidoscope,

his demeanor of a fool,

a stick and bundle tied with rope,

a vagabond void of rules.

His companion is a dog of white,

a loyal usher at his heels.

adventure calls him at first light,

a path untouched by wheels.

Ambitious desire claims his heart;

navigation is but a star.

a humble hearth can hardly thwart,

true loves pull from afar.

New beginnings, a leap of faith,

Life experience and humility.

Lack of reason may sometimes take,

the place of possibility.

Enthusiasm will support,

A wild extraordinaire.

A blissful animated force,

Dangers, he is unaware.

Fear and faith one shouldn’t lack,

His spirit teaches one to know.

Till our journey takes us back,

In search of truth, we go.
