Wisdom (An Emily dedicated to Brian Strand)

A sprinkle of sage enhances the flavour of rice
A sage enhances the flavour of  life.

A Tribute to Brian Strand
Written:  December 30, 2009

An Emily:is a 2(or sometimes 3) line paradox form of poetry created by Brian Strand 
(labelled thus, inspired by Emily Dickinson poem 1732).It may or may not have a title,uses a 
word with separate meanings,(or one that sounds the same,with a different spelling) with the 
intention to mean several things; thereby, to enhance the thought's ambiguity/enigma.

    Interesting idea from Emily. Brian is the sage. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
