Sage

“When the sage becomes aware that his goal is getting God not collecting wealth and luxury items and keeps that awareness alive his wisdom is called stable.”– translation by Sharmishtha Basu.

The sage’s appetite mushrooms.
He has shallots, mushrooms, hazelnuts
and has bread and beard trimmed

He has parsley, but
he is starving to death
waiting for God, because

he will not eat
when the sage is missing

— Douglas Gilbert
