Profound Thoughts from a Deep Tinker
On this page are some random not-poems* on things I think about or wish I understood better.
*I really don't like poetry, so I don't call these musings poems or poetry.
"What you focus on is what you'll attract."
What you focus on is what you'll see.
What you see is what you'll act on,
either for or against.
BUT what you focus on is only a tiny fraction of
All there is to see.
Lessons from a Tree
Lesson One: Just stand there quietly.
Lesson Two: See lesson one.
Science vs Intuition
Science and intuition,
'Intelligence' and 'instinct', are
No more incompatible than
My two hands.
A left hand and a right hand,
Is much more effective than either alone.
I have a left hand and a right hand -
And most of me is in between.
I. Is a wise person
A fool "in recovery"?
A recovered fool?
If so, then the wisest among us
Were once the greatest fools.
So, there is hope for me yet.
II. Prudence and wisdom
are not synonymous.
Prudence may at times be wise,
But wise actions are not always prudent.
On the whole, I'd rather be wise than prudent.
III. My wisdom teeth were all removed.
Does that mean I'm relegated to
Being a fool?
What not to say
"Hang in there," he said
When I told him I was not doing so well.
Platitudes! Kindly meant, but
"Hang in there" is perhaps
Not the best thing to say to someone who is quietly
Deciding from which beam in the barn to hang herself.
Then again, it did make me laugh!
More to come...
