Fool On The Hill - GBE #89 (subject: Picture Prompt)
I could have been a Doctor and saved some lives
I could have been a Teacher and shaped some young minds
I could have been a carpenter, chef, author, or anyone who affect another persons world.
I chose the path less travelled.
I came here to see the majestic of sunrises and sunsets.
Uninhibited views of starlight nights, and hear the completely unedited sounds of nature.
To taste the unfiltered sweetness of the earth and suckle every scent from each breeze.
Indeed, to feel the love of the Creator and learn the true reason why we are here.
Years passed, and with each passing season, I could sense, I was closer to the truth.
One day a young man came to my door.He noticed my house, secluded from the world and asked if I knew there was another house like this. I made some tea and we sat and talked. He reminded me of the man I once was, a passion forand understanding for the path less travelled. I had confided that my years in seclusion had given me access to the true reason why we are here. His eyes widened,"please tell me what you have learned", he asked. I paused, and realized, if I handed him the answer, his quest would be over, the effort in solving the riddle is the lesson and what leads to the truth is the truth.
I thanked him for his company and bid him on his way and wished him luck in his journey. I know he wasn't pleased with my sudden silence, but one day he will know.
As for you, please feel welcome to come anytime, there will always be two teacup settings at my table.
Day after day,
Alone on a hill,
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him,
They can see that he's just a fool,
And he never gives an answer,
But the fool on the hill,
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning 'round- The Beatles
