Dream-Coat…

*

In the starry realms

Two suns often determine

The course of a single planet.

*

So, too for ‘modern man’

Whose actions can be

Determined by more than one ‘morality’.

*

Thus, we shine…

One moment with this colour

And now, with another.

*

There may be even cases

where our actions become multi-hued…

The Mirror Man…

*

If it were possible to achieve objectivity for a space…

We could reflect on what it might mean for man.

Yet, even the most spotless surface,

would only hold its image reversed.

And since we have now out grown

the perfect symmetry

of our own form…

that we might come

to yearn our other halves…

The halves we thought we knew

when sumberged as subject.

Like serfs striving to serve an ideal…

We could not help but see ourselves exposed.

But would such exposure lead to selflessness?

 

 

Honouring Sanctity…

*

And so, the mighty bend low before the Saint?

The misery of his meagre apparel, the antithesis of all they strive for.

And yet, is there not something of power in renunciation?

What is it that moves behind those placid eyes?

Something steely and beyond the merely material.

What secret whisperings are those ears privvy to?

What is it that needs not their trappings

And heeds not their vainglory?
