Cave of Wisdom

Wisdom grows slowly
like a stalagmite
from the endless drip
of daily trivialities

The trickle of everyday minutiae
The infinitesimal details of life
Solidify year upon year
into a formidable pillar

deep in the mysterious
caverns of our minds
Standing as solid columns
supporting the basement of our thoughts

Unseen, unheard
the sleeping pillars
do their work at rest
in obscure silence
