Perspicacity

Someday my mind gives me words that are more interesting than others. Today’s word ‘perspicacity’ is a bit tough.  It’s pejorative counterpart ‘shrewdness’ seems to be more common today, but this character trait, if used appropriately can be beneficial. 

Perspicacity

by Jason Seaux


To see with insight
— what others hide
seeking to bide
grace and favor —

Though not a judge
— to do the best
is to confess

things that might
if seen by light
are already known

and open therefore
paths before
leading to home.
