in a Ghazal poem
|Profound sages conceive ancient wisdom,
then scribe the words to leave ancient wisdom.
These dog-eared yellow pages bound between
dusty brown covers sheave ancient wisdom.
In quiet reverie, we meditate
and attempt to perceive ancient wisdom.
Crinkled remnants of burnt candles reflect
hours trying to unweave ancient wisdom.
Hard work and gold medal accomplishment
will ensure we achieve ancient wisdom.
The empty shells of motivated minds
stand ready to receive ancient wisdom.
The misplaced dynamic of lazy folks
will surely try to cleave ancient wisdom.
With the help of Granddaddy and teachers,
our kids will soon retrieve ancient wisdom.
