Veritas



From the ancients
to coevals

all the books
and journals
theorizing
and philosophizing

of scholars
and learned
clergy
and clerics

lecturing
and debating
on metaphysics
pontificating

with chitter and chatter
they fill gray spaces

Nevermind
those academics!

Meditate
and breathe out
the dust of ages

Gaze in awe
at the power
of the true Philosopher
and Sage

whose sermon is delivered
in a single flower
