Wise:Week Forty Nine of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

I remember reading a poem in my childhood that extolled the virtues of going to bed early and rising early.  Early to bed and early to rise; makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.  It has been a long time since I had gone to bed early though I had been getting up quite early from bed to go to college or work.  Maybe that’s why I am not quite healthy, wealthy or wise.

Is it the same reason that we do not see too many wise people in modern society nowadays.  Recent happenings all over the world clearly demonstrate a lack of wisdom all around us.  Increase in wealth, sure.  Lot many people are filthy rich in today’s world compared to bygone eras.  For sure more people are healthy today compared to a century ago.  But do we have more wise people?

That made me think about what are the qualities of wise people.  That thinking resulted in the poem starting with the word “Wise” and that’s my post for week forty nine of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter “W”

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
