Wisdom

Celebration of Life 327

 

We wander the woods

of our souls looking for light,

all the while it shines

a path before us.

What we knew comes to surface

as we find our way.

From One Generation Of Men To Another

Father and son, cruising the manuals

Of cars and life. The older man rolls beneath

The car while his son hands him tools.

One man is approaching the hill,

The other descending.

Greasy handed, one passes parts

And the other wisdom.

They talk oil, filters, and women;

The nuts and bolts of living and loving.

The father knows it’s important to rev

The engine, go for a test drive.

He instructs the son to drive

Around the block a time or two.

One tosses granules on the oil

On the driveway and the other words

into the still afternoon air,

both absorb as intended.

Together, they wash away the grime

And sweat of the day’s work.

They share a beer and few more hours.

More is said within the pauses

And passing glances until

The younger man gets behind the wheel.

One thing the older man knows is

The ride is over way too soon.

Patiently Waiting

Scribbling Spiritual Sand: “Does not wisdom cry out, and understanding lift up her voice? She takes her stand on the top of the high hill, beside the way, where the paths meet.” Proverbs 8:2

She drifts in shadows,

dancing among heads and hearts,

ignored by cynics

She waits for us all,

hoping some day we will see

the knowledge of life

Tree of Life

Scribbling Spiritual Sand “She (wisdom) is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who retain her.” Proverbs 3:18

Sustainer of life
quietly leading the way
to those who listen
