Poems on Virtues 1

if you were a virtue

to be
simple is not
to be a simpleton
simplicity is just being
a grace

simplest
among virtues
it is light lucid clear
a part of all other major
virtues

encased
in occams blade
buried deep in genes and
epigenes it needs nurture to
be learned

unlike
the virtue of
generosity that
is dynamic it is one of
repose

opposed
to the vice of
duplicity it is
natural unselfconscious free
of the

lapse of
self absorption
a virtue of the intellect
of the

moral
of the spirit
to be simple is to
be devoid of complexity
it is


a state
of quiet ease
in just being without
pretense or dissimulation
nothing

else but
being simple
a virtue of
ease that is so exacting to
attain

i ask
if you were a
virtue what will you be
i say you are simplicity
my friend//
