second hand

There are times for silence:
to be attentive and to wait.

I have (yet) to learn all The truth of it.

This Writing is All second hand
But I can Sketch tonight.
The frequent practice of this exercise
must be a keen and deep Catechism.

success is a foregone conclusion.

. . . . . . . .

For this erasure poem | commentary, Sunday's OED word of the day is 'learn.'

Dear Susan,
Lovely drawing. The beginning of the haik reminds me of "Ecclesiastes"...and my old Sunday school days, too;).
Cheers, Sadami
