Wisdom Knows








Wisdom Knows

Wisdom’s understanding is known.

It is known before any words are spoken.

It is known as the words are spoken,

and it is known after they are complete.

And, if the words are halting

or if they are love-full;

if they are spoken in laughter

or sighed in sorrow,

Wisdom’s understanding knows.

And even when sharp words are hurled—

anger for anger…

Wisdom’s understanding knows.

For though Wisdom hears, yet Wisdom also reads—

what is in the body, they eyes,

the breath.

This is how Wisdom understands:

Beyond and behind the words, the body speaks

and the Being is known.

Beyond the mind-world, and long after all words

have been sown and flown,

the unspoken Heart-Message yet remains.
