When Wisdom was King - Aug. 14, 2023

honors came

audiences were granted

wealth was unquestioned

then one day

he pawned it all for love

and became a needy hobo

using as a blanket,

found the night not wanting

for anything

and his ash revealed

an unmistakable viewpoint

that the un-burnt

simply can never imagine

love plays with its breath

like fire passing through

the flute of a full moon
