Another Green World?…

*

The infant souls crouched in the tunnel.

Water trickled and dripped… echoing…

Raven’s claws scratched and scuttled,

drowning the echoes;

he paused and tilted his head:

his moon-eyes flashed.

*

Two tiny points of light defined the distance.

“Cruuu-aaach!” said Raven, “the light to your right leads to accident and pointlessness. There, is no love and no return. Death is an empty void of nothingness.

“Doooll-aaach!” continued Raven, “the light to your left leads to beauty and design. Love flows everywhere and return is eternal. Death is a paradise of abundance.”

Raven eyed the infant-souls, “which light do you choose?”

      1. I was thinking about it as a premise to faith. If those were the only choices, I would surely chose the second. I actually choose a third doorway – to step freely into the unknown.
        (See where this poem took me? How fun is that.)
