Mythopoeia

~

A blank sheet of paper

    Awaits to be filled;

Marks, unto letters;

    Words, to be spilled.

 

Lines, run to margins,

   To keep them entailed:

Thoughts put on paper,

    Potential, trammelled.

 

Like gardens that taper

    From fresh fallowed fields,

Thoughts are the crops,

    The actual, revealed.

 

First, from the chaos,

    Flux fits appeal;

Chaos and order

    Coexist,

Both the real deal.

 

Man, O map maker,

    potential unveils,

semantics by syntax,

    concordant in zeal.

 

Man, a map maker,

    In words He dispels

The chaos by order

    And fixed ritual;

 

Potential eventual,

    New Knowledge is real.

The real seals the deal:

    Ostensibly, weal.
