I’m finding words of wisdom in a wishing well

A frog is croaking at me with a mild truth to tell

“My patience is a rainbow and at the end I find

A delicious golden fuzzy buzzing muncher of a fly


It fills me and fixes me and let’s me play again

As I ring around the rosy I wonder what is next. “

I send a bucket down to fill with water and clear my head

My slippery green friend eyes the mark and jumps right in


Up and up and up he cries I haul him to the top

I take a nice big swig he cries “this was my dearest hope

Out in nature I will find the rainbow’s start, ahoy!

I am full up out the downspout to seek the sweetest joy.”


Along he hops I wipe my brow and take my own sweet time

Then clamber in the bucket waiting for my big muncher fly

Yes, wisdom in everywhere for sure, in a wishing well, in a frog, in a fly.

Especially if being in the ever-present moment is enough, except for when an army of well-armed frogs want all the flies.

Or when the flies rise up en mass and smother the frogs.

Some of the thoughts on my mind, rene, -- but I do love your poem.
