Wealth of Wonder

 It's a wet, wet Waking this morning...and icy! Be careful, drivers and walkers. I landed on my 'sitter' before I knew what happened, while pushing, (not carrying) the blue-bins full of recycling to the end of the driveway for pick-up!

Wealth of wonder waiting
Wakes the world with dawn
Moments compensating
For moments bygone

Morning is a candle
Soon and softly snuffed
By the ready ramble
Of hours lived-loved

Wise, the one who reckons
Now is Being’s prime
Wealth of wonder beckons
From a grace called Time

We are always leaving
Yesterday behind
Wealth of wonder weaving
Worlds within the mind

Awesome undertaking
Time’s moment-ous flit
Wealth of wonder waking
What remains of it

I'm torn between 'well of wonder' and 'wealth of wonder'...
Wonder is wealth and wonder is a deep, deep well!
So, you may choose the imagery that best works for you...
drawing from its well or wondering at its poor-man's-wealth!
