A New Poem, from my FaceBook page.

PHILO SOPHIA

Wisdom-Lover,
Sits contemplating
The ancient bottle
Upon which he finds himself.
The earthen vessel
Containing the elixir of all.
Created long before
The holy book's first words.
Handmade over 2000 years
Before Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
It dawned on him:
Understanding is not knowledge.
"I wouldn't give a snap
Of my two fingers
For all their learning."
