may they thrive like wheat.

  5. If only we could be made wiser so easily…your haiku makes me wish that the words of wisdom could be inscribed in my heart.

  6. This is a beautiful shot, as long as the words.

  7. Thanks for sharing the joy! I love the graphic quality of the old, bare tree that seems to be at the end of its life. But the words of wisdom are wonderful.

  8. The picture says it all and the words just to the mystical quality of the tree.

  9. It feels like very lonely scene.

  31. You always have such beautiful photos and verses, mmt. I love the biblical feel of this; I’m reading in Proverbs right now, and your poem evokes the verses about Wisdom and also the parable of the wheat and tares in the gospels.
