wise yoda

While camping in the vast wilderness of the west coast, Yoda came to whisper words of wisdom to us. We were not wise enough to see him until our second day. He sat quietly and watched us, I am sure wondering if  “those fools will ever notice me?”

This is my post to the weekly photo challenge, smiles.




Is it in the smile

Found perched in an unlikely place


Is it found in the number of candles on a cake

Or shared from generations before us


Is it found in the melody of nature

Or in cacophony of a storm


Do all attain wisdom

Do some choose to stay fools


Possibly in the cry of a newborn

In the words of the dying




If we were wise enough

We could hear wisdom

In our own precious silence
