Too many books to read!

What to do with all this seed–

Grow a jungle of thought?

~

I’ve lost sight of wood for trees

And no longer see toes below knees,

So that I might simply walk.

~

Vision without action–

A dream!

Action without vision–

A nightmare!

~

So, the proverb goes

With the wisdom it holds

And plenty of space to run.

~

Still, my love of words,

Like grain to birds,

Lifts me, tree-crown to sun.
