Organic wisdom: ‘make your ear attentive to wisdom’

“Making your ear attentive to wisdom
and inclining your heart to understanding”

Proverbs 2:2
What you focus on spreads its way across
the terrain of your heart. New fields
grow where your attention rests; great trees
reach for the sky there; and fresh grass 
seedlings rise from the soil you water regularly. 
So it is that wisdom grows in your flower beds 
and insight suspends itself to your vines. 
An opening emerges near your succulents and
bits of understanding take hold by your peace lily.
This much is true—pain fertilises growth. And when 
fresh springs emerge from rock
your mouth opens at the surprise.
