"wisdom's path" a poem

Another poem I wrote while hanging up hundreds of hangers in the backroom of Salvation Army.



Wisdom’s Path


When you find the path to your wisdom

Your friends will call you lost.

When you dive to the depth of your ocean

Your family will grieve you “storm-tossed.”


Down the watery ladder

Seek the oyster of dark

Plant there the pearls of your musings

To trouble the mother of hearts.


The Breath once again must surface

Your saviors will see you accosting

They’ll ask what treasure you found there

“Better yet my friends, I have lost it!”
