the concept of falling

January 27, 2009

Although I have written five poems and two essays since my last post, I chose to repost this poem from my old folio at emanilapoetry.com.

And yes, the reason is obvious. That old saying about lightning is mere profanity.

 

I’ve seen this road before
…a road of polished bricks
and dreamy songs.

a walk so lovely you’ll never feel
your feet
touching the grounds
…as if walking on a cottony cloud:
so wonderful,
yet too ephemeral.

a path so grandiose you’ll think
they are not made
to be earthly
…as if they’re meant for Zion and Narnia:
so majestic,
yet too tall.

but I should never let myself
be captured by its beauty
for although I can look and
free to start my trek:

I dare NOT.

because it is too splendid

…and I am just a MORTAL.
