WISDOM

WISDOM


He had a thought,
He said a word,
He performed an act.

Looked back!

The word didn’t agree with 
The thought,
Neither did the act with 
The word.

He was perplexed!

He forgot the thought,
Erased the word,
Obliterated the act, 
And 
Started anew! 

Myriad tryouts after…

He managed, 
The word to agree 
With 
The thought,
And
The act with the 
Word!

He achieved wisdom!

*Athena (Minerva), Goddess of wisdom, daughter of Zeus, was called “thrice-born” for to be wise meant to: think correctly, to speak correctly and to act correctly.

    Dear Mandy, how nice to see you again! Thank you for liking it. Wisdom is a fruit that many desire to taste but rarely a mortal is tasting it!
