day 4: 'we meet again, at last...'
the student is now the master
and yet the master is no less
he is the same as he was a moment ago
he has not yet forgotten
the sharing of his wisdom never meant that he gave it away
he shares it willingly, with gratitude
and he seeks it mindfully, with curiosity
Even now, that the circle is complete.
In his giving, he has received knowledge as well
and he smiles knowingly
a kind, secret smile
as his student, the master now truly,
greets him in this last of moments
'We meet again, at last...'
