Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge – Week 46 – Growth & Wisdom

TANKA

Growth & Wisdom

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
wisdom in leaders
varied from little to none
dumb leaders who fight
for growth… true…for themselves…
their followers… the rest fall
~~
knowledge found in books
libraries full of wisdom
seeds for future growth
abused misused for war
will we ever learn
~~
a learning curve
acute or gentle…wisdom
to enhance knowledge…
growth…prosperity… all life
the choices… many… choose right
~~
nature much wisdom
without it planet earth dies
most leaders liars
denying research… no growth
to late they’ll see the truth
~~
a tree of wisdom
does it really exist
botanists have searched
they persist to this day
to find this strangest of growth
