Wisdom - Haiku

Wisdom can't be bought,
It's better grasped with time,
Brightening our lives.

Look within your soul,
All answers lying beneath,
Purify your world.

Wisdom is not a material object that can be bought or bargained with money. Rather, its a quality that we imbibe with time, growing with our experiences. The wisdom gained brightens up our lives.

The answers to all our problems lie within us. We can solve them through our wisdom by looking into our souls and finding the relevant solution to all our troubles. If we learn to solve our problems, we can live our life in a pure and pleasant way.


This Haiku is written for Haiku Heights, and the Prompt is Wisdom.

    1. Thanks 4 visiting my blog. it realy motivates me to write more and more :-)

      Regarding the 2nd line, I guess "better" is the only 2 syllables word, while the others have 1.so the count is 7.please correct me if I am missing somethng.

      Thanks again 4 visiting :-)

  8. P.S. Also, I wanted to mention that your wisdom haiku is a senryu. Haiku reflects nature, and senryu reflects emotions and life in general. When you pair a haiku with a drawing or photo, as you did, it's called haiga. Great job! :)

  9. Wisdom MAY come with time, but some people grow older without growing wiser.

    Gathering Wisdom

    1. wisdom shouldn't be compared between individuals...the degree of acquiring wisdom changes with each person...but yes, every person gains knowledge from his experiences as he grows older :-)
