Tranquil Wisdom


I smell the fresh breeze

& feel the tranquil wisdom

Of the leaves’ lack of heed

In spite of the kingdom

That on them sleeps

& on them relies

They have sageness so deep

& by them myself abides

They are quiet

They bear sacred virtues

That can defeat today’s riot

& that can possess peace that the world pursues

They bow in welcome

Of a tweeting visitor

They hold weights of fruit

The world’s cure lies in leaves so miniature

I can always hear their hymn of peace get sung

As I walk along…
