0192 Always There Is Wisdom

Always there are wizards.

They don’t hide themselves.

That would be wrong for them.

They don’t advertise themselves.

That would be wrong for them.

They wait.

That could be boring. Or painful, even.

But that’s their job.

There may be one in the next street.

You need to look.

Then they meet you halfway.

They may look like anybody. Or nobody. Or everybody.

When you go to them, they may dress up in cloak and pointed hat.

That’s just symbolic.

Just at the point of the hat, there’s space.

That’s what they’ll tell you about.

That space is full.

Like your heart.

No one cares much about wizards.

Except those who seek them.

Wizards are wise.

But only if you ask them questions.

Then the answer comes out of space.

And lives in your heart.

Of course.

A wizard i think is like the perfect poem...i do think its out there, or will be out there but it won't be delivered to anybodys doorstep, nor will it be embraced by anyone who does not believe that it exists...and the space from the point of the hat, michael...that is the insight of that poem moving from the paper to the mind of the one who has been seeking out perfection...extaordinary write, michael...i do believe i saw a glint of open light flash over my pc whilst musing on this piece...but do i dare ask...or just know and wait at the halfway mark...'''''''''''

How can one write a poem both whimsical and wise? Ask a wizard. Good one, Michael. Raynette
I have a good friend who is a Wizard, but I don't think you wear a pointy hat, do you Michael? What a charming write, which makes me want to look again at everyone I meet....Are you the Wizard, Are you the Wizard? I have a question.
