Drum the Drum by Drumming

Of course we walk the walk by walking.
This is not ancient wisdom,
recorded by Lao Tzu or enshrined by Confucius.
Happy are those who live life by living
is not one of the Beatitudes.
It’s a linguistic algorithm;
the interplay of noun, verb, and gerund;
Thing, action, and the rubber-road doing.
Profoundly ponder proximity to the central truth
We plant plants by planting.
We carefully care by caring.
We love love by loving.
But there are limits.
Do we poet poems by poeting?
