The gift of wisdom

beautiful wisdom,
not cleverness or intelligence,
or even only human.

Wisdom that speaks
to our inner being,
refreshing us as
streams rippling in the sunlight.

Or a gossamer thread
weaving us together,
fragile in our clumsy hands,
yet strong as the universe is old.

Our minds alive
to your gaze
and souls hungry
for your filling.

beautiful wisdom,
my treasured gift
for the new year.
