Red Ruby Haiku

We want the rubies
But wisdom is more precious
Nothing's worth as much

Wisdom yeah wisdom
Later man but I got plans
For now now right now

A pomegranate
Opened like grandma used to
Seeds drop like rubies

wisdom is
knowing what's enough
wise enough

Very nice reminder, Mr. Rabbi, Sir. ;-)

Ah yes, we do want the rubies (and the rubles) because the price of wisdom comes with much work and pain.

Like you haiku very much.

Nice Haiku, seems to be based on
Proverbs 8:11--
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

I am grateful for the positive comments. I am feeling lately like I don't have the umph to respond to each one properly or to comment on the poems of others as I'd like to and for this I am sorry.
