Written for:  Carpe Diem #1303 Seed of Wisdom

“With them the seed of Wisdom did I sow,
And with mine own hand wrought to make it grow;
And this was all the Harvest that I reap’d–
“I came like Water, and like Wind I go.”


© Omar Khayyam (Tr. FitzGerald)

sunflowers bloom
seed of wisdom spread out
a new day rises

Here is my attempt:

After reaping,
my mind filled up with knowledge,
I bowed as a willow

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
