Weary of my Wisdom

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Writing Prompt #167 “Collage Special Edition”

“I am weary of my wisdom, like the bee that hath gathered too much honey.” Is a quote from Nietzsche.

Collage 167

Collage by Laura Bloomsbury be sure to stop by her blog!


The signpost said there were

One and a half miles still to go

But my feet were slow,

Weighed down like a bee

That had gathered too much honey.

With limbs as wooden as a shop-front dummy,

I was determined to reach my destination,

No more procrastination:

Just keep going to the end of the road,

To a place where I could float,

A swaying, bobbing boat,

Drifting out to sea

On a wave of optimism,

Weary of my wisdom.
