fallen out on the road

The small ruby everyone wants has fallen out on the road.
Some say its East of us, others West of us.
Some say "among primitive earth rocks," others "in the deep waters." 
Kabir's instinct told him it was inside, and what it was worth,
And he wrapped it up carefully in his heart cloth.

~ Kabir
