Sapiential (relating to wisdom)

February 9, 2020

Since the first dawn,

            Wisdom awakened as Queen,

            ancient as time and veiled in mystery.

            All tried to keep her in sight

            but often had to guess her

            true intent, filling in elusive details.


In the turn of a century,

            Science showed up:

            sleek and stylish with clear lines

            and well-defined guidance.

            Hungry for deeper understanding,

            many flocked to sit at his feet.


Smitten with Science,

            they shunned Wisdom, rocks thrown

            at her until she left her throne

            and went underground,

            revealing her brilliance to only

            those who searched with a sincere heart.


As fashionable as Science had been,

            eventually the crowds thinned,

and whispers from those missing

Wisdom’s mystical curves

            grew wings

and floated in the breeze.


Having caught wind

            of the murmurs, logically

Science went in search of Wisdom.

            Initially evasive,

            Wisdom let Science find her

            in a meadow of wildflowers.


Though pitted as adversaries,

they stood near

each other.

            The distrust waned

            with each cycle of the moon.

            It was good.


With a motion

            so gradual even the nearby bees

            could not detect, Science reached

            for Wisdom’s hand.  Their



            intertwined down to the webbing, and

            Science plainly spoke in Wisdom’s ear:


“You complete me.”
