Wisdom seldom gained with ease.



Tiny tot books flaunt
Nursery teachers imbibe
Gradually moulds

Grows with passing time
Strengthens with good company
Parents strive to end

Inspite of preachings
Wisdom seldom gained with ease
Inner voice, the Guru!




Wisdom is something nobody can forcefully imbibe into us. Grows with time, experience and from mistakes. Good company and a knowledgeable guide helps, but inner voice, the main Guru!


This Haiku is written for The Haiku Heights. The prompt for this week is 'WISDOM'.

    1. Thanks Joanne.. Tru.. Knowledge grows, but not necessarily wisdom!
      Wisdom doesn't have any barriers! Circumstances n experiences n mistakes teach i think!

  9. Very nice, Pranita. In your set of verses we are seeing wisdom being gotten. It is a lifelong process, some go at a faster pace than others. Much faster.

    BTW, Inspite should be two words, 'In spite.'
