Plant something you want


“So, I realised that the loneliness and feeling I wasn’t heard was probably the result of me treating you like that. So, I wanted to say I am sorry.” Beep. Click. The spirit of Wisdom patted me on the back as I put down my cell phone. “That message may not save your relationship with her” he said.

“I know” I smiled. “I just realise how well sowing and reaping works. I just wanted to plant something  I wanted to harvest.”

In a thousand tomorrows

In my brokenness I wished upon a falling star, for a thousand chances to say "I love you." As the day broke, so did my heart, as you rejected my love.
True to her promise the star granted me a new day, to start afresh, a different "I love you." As time went by, I started to realise that you wanted me not in your tomorrow. Nine hundred and ninety nine tomorrows broke my heart each time, as you turned and walked away, taking with you my dreams, my hopes, my happiness.
On this eve of the last tomorrow, the fallen star offered me one more tomorrow. I shook my head, pointing out the all the rejection wont change one last tomorrow. If only I could go back to yesterday, I thought.
The broken star winked, and in a blink I was in yesterday. I corrected my faults, I paid interest in yours, and told you each day what a blessing you are.
When the last tomorrow finally arrived, again you turned and walked and said your goodbye.
In that last goodbye, I realised it wasn't that I made you unhappy. I noticed that you are unhappy with you. I saw how you did not love nor value who you are.
I waved goodbye, turned and walked towards the day after.

Weeping Planet


The cries were heart shattering, and sounded like the weeping of a broken child.  I walked around my house, but found no one.  I hollered for the attention of the spirit of Wisdom. "Slowly!" He burst forward from the trunk of a large nearby tree,

Your Soul has a Home in my Heart


I opened my eyes, to see the spirit of Wisdom sitting at my side, on the bed. I put my hand out to awaken you, but you were not by my side.

Wishing wont make it so


"Why are you laughing at me?" The spirit of Wisdom had collapsed in a heap on the floor due to uncontrollable laughter.

What do you own?


"Ha!" The outburst was sarcastic.  The spirit of Wisdom stood by the fire, visible only to me, as I socialized with friends and acquaintances. "What's the matter with you?" I asked through the mouth of my heart. "Their bad habits," he pointed to those present, "you claim to share - not a word of truth!"

Wrestle for Attention

‘Fight for her!!’ My blood boiled in my veins, ‘I wont fight for her!’ The spirit of wisdom had given me dating advice which did not agree with my views. ‘Why not?’ he barked.

Collected Beauty

Travelling the earth, I magically gathered the radiance of all the beauty I could find,

Universal Currency

‘That’s how it works in the universe,’ the spirit of wisdom threw his head back as he laughed.
‘I can’t believe the universe has a currency!’

Time Travel

In a blink, I stood in a time that was more akin to my values. ‘Just because your physical body is confined to a physical space and time, does not mean you can’t visit generations gone before you.’ The spirit of wisdom patted me on the back.
