Wisdom’s Trails

Where lieth the true essence of wisdom.

Does it just accompany the chronology of age

Simply because the years turn into decades of life.

Is it found through one existence defining experience

Or amid the multitude of challenges encountered during

The phases shaping the course of our fragile mortality.

 

Is it manifest in considered circumspection, probably

Applied in varying degrees to ensuing circumstance and events.

Is it the unique province of a few who then impart it wisely

As revered sages to the expectant seeking its solemn direction.

Or is it a derivative of the collective thoughts, then spoken, or woven

Into bound volumes of scholarly accounts for the edification of many.

 

Could it be, that it is encountered in the calm solitude of the walk

Through the parks and gardens of contemplation, or arises from

Deep within the routine of the communing with the supreme being.

Possibly, it may reveal itself in one of or a combination of these.

Yet, the one who finds wisdom should guard it utmost jealously

For in its midst, is contained the invaluable compass to navigate life.

 

Thus, irrespective of where its imprints are encountered,

When indeed in its time, it attends to your discernment

And commands by its very stature one’s rapt attention

Court it fully, and abide wholeheartedly by its doctrines.

With astuteness, hold firm to its priceless undeniable virtues

To guide your judgement, utterances and all undertakings.

That its essence, may steadfastly illuminate your course

With its sagacious attributes to your enduring benefit.

Failure Revealed

Falling is not failure …

Nay failure, is failing to stand up after the fall

To transcend the challenge with renewed courage,

Or failing to embrace the promise of opportunities

That before one with the bounty of inspiration appear,

And decidedly, ignoring the echoes of encouragement

Seeking to persuade the aching spirit, but rather

Assuming the tangled cloak of woe and utter misery

To wallow in the comfort of abject helplessness to the

Grand disillusionment of the propulsion of hope itself.

Tis then, failure multiplies in its fullest dimension

Poised to overwhelm those that elect to court it nonetheless.

The Extraordinary Rosebud

This rosebud like any other …
Foretells in understated measure
The wonder of the beauty still to
Blossom forth with grandeur, amid
The intricate bond of life and time.

But this rosebud, beyond the usual splendor
Ceaseth not in the promise of optimism, for it
Springs eternal, beckoning with an elevating
Message of hope, yet seeking to be recognized
And embraced for the enduring nature of the
Fullness of its potential and reassurance within.
