An Agnostic Parable

How do I show you,
What you evoke in me?

Beyond the beauty,
the love,
Emanating from your entire being,
Is Earth’s heart.

Beyond those eyes,
And soothing hands,
A labour of creation,
A calm wildfire.

Beyond the pain,
And the resilience,
The trials endured,
Reside’s humanity’s lifeline.

You evoke in me,
A yearning for your essence,
Unseen yet universal,
Intangible yet coursing.

Look Up

Look up,
See the vastness,
Of our world,
Let your eyes swim in the sky blue,
And glide along the giant cotton balls,
The depth mesmerizes,
And dizzies.

Concrete recalls our attention,
Walls go up around our thoughts,
We look down,
And our world becomes resized,
To manageable compartments,
Defying even our imagination.

Freedom

This beautiful bird,
Settling on a perch,
Colourfully bright,
With beak and bite,
And full of pride,
What a sight!

Here in this locked cage,
Again prepares her rage,
The fight of at least an age,
Well-worn this page.

She readies her stance,
For this next dance,
Her beak a sharp lance,
Eyes in a keen trance.

Moving swiftly into action,
Reduces her obstacle to a fraction!

This winged warrior,
Victorious in this skirmish,
Exits her prison with belief,
And with a sigh of relief,
Moves closer to freedom.

Finding comfort in larger bounds,
She claims the next perch,
And with keen eyes starts to search,
For the target of her next lurch.
