Arts


“The art of being wise
Is the art of knowing
What to overlook.”
                The Principles of Psychology
                Wm James, 1842-1910

The unwise in him
Pondered on till dawn
What was left and gone unsaid
Lest an argument ensue

He would ask
Over and over again
“Why are you so silent,
Why are your thoughts so blue?"

For she cast disgust
Of its various shades
For all of the gray
She would hide away

She looked about
Towards the blue
And the sun, she wished
That it would stay

But he badgered
And moaned
And droned
On and on

Till the morning he woke
And found she was gone.

“Bore, n., a person who talks
when you wish him to listen.”
                Ambrose Bierce, 1842-1914

Good Morning dear Sybil....have not seen you
in days...  Yet,  upon your arrival,  you
bring to us much wisdom...

Yes,  if only one would listen more to the
breeze flowing through the limbs of life
and hear the whispers...

Very interesting and truthful write. Enjoyed. Chris

Life is not measured by breaths you take, but by moments that take your breath away.

HA!  This was great--and reminds me of someone.  I bet many can relate to this piece.
