Wisdom makes a man
Judicious in his make-up
inputs awaited

Commands respect for
contributions to the group
Quells bad attitudes

At times wisdom comes
too late. Refusal to be
involved damaging

Decision making
with leadership imposed can
well purge time wasters

Written for Chev's haiku at CARPE DIEM #125 with prompt wisdom

  1. Hindsight is 20/20 the wisdom we gain is usually far to late because we don't think, just blink.

  2. nice kernels of wisdom yourself...wisdom is best gained before and not after, though not as easy to cultivate as some might imagine...smiles.

  3. Once in a meeting
    A great miracle occurred
    It was productive
