Wisdom’s Voice – A Poetic Duet with Hasty Words

I was blessed to be able to write a poetic duet with the wonderful Ms. Hasty Words! It was both an honor and privilege to work with such a great poet, and slightly intimidating. NONE THE LESS, ENJOY!!!

Wisdom’s Voice

Her knuckles were gnarled
Much like that of an aging pine
And her whispers whistled
With a hollow breezy whine

With missing patches of bark
Resembling the scars of life
Tell the tale of an unbroken spirit
Who took everything in stride…

Young eyes would land on her face
With a fearful sympathetic grace
And like a slivered fingernail moon
A half smile accompanied their gaze

Patiently they awaited words of vigor
Knowing she’d deliver them with rigor
Wisdom that pours slowly into the soul like sap
Unrelenting, unstoppable once it is triggered

Often an overwhelming peace would immobilize them
Found victims having heard her voice, a precious gem
An ageless, charming melody that mystified their sight
Capturing them inside one timeless moment of flight
