What Great Thing Awaits?

What is patience if not being here, fully?
What is this game of searching but too-clever a refusal?
What Great Thing Awaits?
What if it were just this? This now? This itself?
What is this longing but its own fulfillment?
Might longing know itself as its own fulfillment?
May thirst and hunger itself be quenched and satiated desire?
What are we waiting for, if not this, itself?
Was Plato quite mistaken?

There is no cave wall, and no cave!
There is only home and home-coming!
No well and no image from its imaginary depths.

Narcissus? A flower!
