seed of wisdom 


on the wind

wilted petals float away

sleeping bulb remains


all that’s left

crinkled brown scuttling

over the lawn



in nature’s  mirror –



words moving my pen

forward and back

looking for wisdom

Carpe Diem #1303 Seed of Wisdom

    1. That’s touching to know Jane…a beautiful work to read often and I particularly love the last line in this one: “I came like water and like wind I go”


      1. There was a time when books were harder to come by and more like treasures. There is a sort of romance in having a collection to savour and not craving for more. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the range of reading options…


      2. I resent the time wasted on reading bad books. The only way to avoid it is to read the classics. I might be missing out on some modern gems, but I’d rather let other people waste their time picking them out. 🙂
