Shadows On The Wall

How do we profess

what we can’t understand


The very nature of this

takes on certain demands


If it’s truly beyond

our ability to know


Something deeper is calling,

where thought cannot go


These walls that surround us,

this cave that we’re in


False images dance,

Plato’s fire burns thin


To truly cross over,

breaking free of its chains


We must turn our eyes inward

—to release and proclaim


(The Book Of Prayers: November, 2020)
