Wisdom Poetry

Here, I have included some poetry from my favourite “wisdom poets”. While science has the power to generate knowledge and understanding, poetry, with its intimate use of rhythm, metaphor, and story can nourish, console and generate awareness and wisdom in ways science cannot. There are many more resources I wish to add to this site, which will come in time. But if I had to choose one gift to offer in service to another human soul, it would be poetry, so here is a start - with more to follow.
