Reality Spinners


A poisoned quill spinning golden webs

Webs in the mind of the fly

Fresh minds twisting and struggling to see

Darkness bounces with cheer.


Books can be cannons and words can be shells

Whistling and roaring abound

Commanders oversee from an ivory plateau

Soldiers disoriented by sound


Creation, stagnation unimaginative nation

Coal wrapped in card or paper

For coal is a stone, or a rock it can be known

All are forms of matter.


But rivers flow freely and carry the leaf

solemnly along the torrent

the wind like breath blows a gentle breeze

the leaf stands to dance in glee.


Do words truly capture the essence of feeling?

Can you wrap water in a parcel?

Try as you may to grasp hold of the wind

The truth will slip through your fingers.
