Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Purposeful Perplexity

Perplexity is  the beginning of knowledge
Khalid Gibran

The word "perplex" began as meaning something interwoven or entangled

And then devolved to bewildered

Now, how did that happen?

Was Gibran correct?
should we embrace our perplexity?
or have we simply made life
 too knotty of a problem
To untangle it all?

Have we tangled things up so completely 

That we spend our lives dozing in a wilderness of bewilderment?
Life is complex
and it is our reflex
to shy away from that which may perplex

But have a go!
Seek it out!

Take that which perplexes for a spin
Own it!

you will never "know"
until you do
and that's poetiquejustis

There is gold and abundance of costly stones, 
but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel. 
Proverbs 20:15
