Container In The Contained


Knowledge is love's own desire
You don't know what you're learning
You just feel it worth the attention
To touch your wild thoughts
As you would crazy children.

Path keeps you in a container
But you're not in a wine glass
So you will have to flow out
To ebb the curbs on your shapes.

Wisdom is like that but you lose it
Each time you try to grab it
For it is liquid in thought's shape
But you cannot freeze it.

Concrete learner must be an architect
He knows how to design his learning
Who rebuilds from the base new designs
Wisdom preserves draped constructions.

    ‘Concrete learner must be an architect
    He knows how to design his learning ‘~ well like a programmer in SW engineering…is it so?

    Actually Knowledge and Wisdom …the connotations have difference…a man can have knowledge but he may not be wisdomful…our [Indian] seers and sages were…Wisdomful…but we’re at lower tire knowledgeful… Congrats for sharing
