PASSING SHADOWS

SHADOWS PASSING

In a dark cave I sit
and what I see beyond
is all of the world I know,
I was born blind
to the mystery of existence
prisoner of my own perceptions.
My mind cannot imagine
what it has not known.

Am I the child of a God
or just a shadow
passing through time

of what an Agnostic must experience! Given the time of year, this rings true! Nice work, it makes one think. ~ Gee

Our Chatroom is open 24/7 Feel free to use it for
keeping in touch We have poets around the world and it is fun
to have real-time conversations with those that are up
all night or on the other side of the world.

Thanks, Geez. The idea comes from PLATO

we are minuscule

temporary atoms
magnified by eye's magnification
500 times
if we had no eyes
we wouldn't have ever imagined
we had something
that did rise
and
that's no surprise
tis a surmise
500 times magnified
and
we cry out for more size...
Merry Christmas let it be!

We fear what is not known, Merry Christmas to you ,my friend.
