What to say of talks

That lead to veiling of Truth 

Too much talk leads to chaos 
Yet without talk how does one discuss 
If you must; then talk with
saints 
With devils it is better to stay mum 

Blessing it is to talk with the wise 
Talking with stupid is waste of time 
Says Kabir, 
Half full is forever swaying
The fulfilled prefers staying calm

poem by Kabir (1440-1518), Indian poet
