Wisdom of the Well

How deep is the wisdom of the well?

 

Desperate wishes in the shape of coins

fragments of hopes that were belied

disappointed souls separated from cases

pesticide remnants floating without bases

It is a mirage to birds on the edge.

 

Frogs croak, a woman drawing water sighs and heaves

Life pops up in seemingly rootless leaves

The well wishes it was a pond, river or sea

How frustrating can a limited life be!

An overrated myth, or just water with a ledge?

 

How deep is the wisdom of the well?
