Wisdom is “listening”

to the heart in between beats…

The sounds of silence speak

quietly and pursue peace.

Wisdom is “prudence”

of vision devoid of projection…

Reflective dreams reveal

the transparency of facts.

Wisdom is “truth”

in speech shunning deceit…

Words are full of grace

when blessed with fruit

Wisdom is “detached”

from the world avoiding deals…

The have-to of being involves

commitment to the response.

Wisdom is “compassion”

for all without judgment…

Indifference requires

gentle mercy with kindness.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
