The older I get

the more I understand that wisdom does not reside in my head

instead

it is in my gut

my energy

my breath

and how my body

allows itself

to fully experience

itself is part

of the wider web

that is the trees

soil

water

air

wisdom

cannot be colonised or bought

because

it does not reside in me

but in the silences

the spaces

the stillness

the root

the wing

the blossom

the reflection

that runs deep
