Unimagined Eden – A Poem

When uncertainty pours life’s shattered beaker

When normalcy, once was a friend; now a stranger

And comfort’s companion; unsweetened comfiture.

When building the temple of an expected future –

Like jackhammering Herculean rock to Poseidon

Chisels invisible smoke into sculptures hidden.

But –

Blazing a new trail has never been, nor, ever is easy

Perhaps, all living are ordained sequestered volunteers,

Natural selection pioneers, to build, climb, new ladders

Out of an unimagined Eden.

      1. Beautiful word illustration of the great trek, and conquering of frontiers through the splitting of tribes following their own thermal updraft into the unknown, travelling with uncertainty and only their internal compass to guide them as they visualize and sketch their plans for Eden. Sometimes these plans are sacred and a given.
