Weight Wisdom – 8 NaPoWriMo

“Weight Wisdom” is our 8th word pairing prompt for Poetry writing month. This one took a bit of noodling to find its meaning. Looking up definitions and synonyms helps me see key words from many angles. It jump-starts the poem and the writing then finds its way. The “wisdom” synonym “prudence” hit a Beatles inspired path for this poem. Find your meaning.

8 Weight Wisdom

Weight Wisdom

Burden of wisdom?
Density of wisdom?
Gravity, Pressure, substance?
Caution of wisdom?
Dear Prudence*
come out to play.
Wisdom is our sanity
and insanity
for the more we know
the more we want to know.
Dear Prudence
it’s a sunny day
look ‘round
for all is one
even if not evenly weighted.
Weight of knowing
the all knowing within.
Dear Prudence
Open your eyes
see with your brave heart.
Dear Prudence
come out to play
the weight of wisdom.

*”Dear Prudence” by The Beatles.
