The wisdom of folly
Some days I'm wise not from natural goodness but by some lucky fluke and other days I cannot even guess at what is wise. I cannot see it cannot know it, cannot do it surely cannot be it. Wisdom. It defies our efforts to define it. When we say, "That's wise" perhaps we mean that we agree with some advice or wish it to be true. But once in a while someone will rule a line between the truth and lazy lies straighten all our leanings settle all our fevered doubts at once with a noble certainty a brutal certainty. Then pause! Be cautious: nobody is infinitely wise. Better to accommodate some folly than to be always right always the sage. ~ Rachel McAlpine 2021
first second draft of an instant poem and it will change again or disappear. Maybe it should be called The folly of absolute wisdom?
May you find the happiness within this holiday season.Follow Write Into Life
