The Fish Eagle

the caged lion sniffs the air
barrier lifted
freedom is a step away
an unknown concept

we rush out headlong
embracing perceived freedom
yet hopelessly lost
in idealized pursuit

Poet's Notes about The Poem

SUZETTE PRIME,
designed by
Suzette Crous.
Syllable count: 2,3,5,7,11, etc plus a philosophical statement:

A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. A natural number greater than 1 that is not a prime number is called a composite number. For example,5 is prime, as only 1 and 5 divide it, whereas 6 is composite, since it has the divisors 2 and 3 in addition to 1 and 6. The fundamental theorem of arithmetic establishes the central role of primes in number theory: any integer greater than 1 can be expressed as a product of primes that is unique up to ordering. The uniqueness in this theorem requires excluding 1 as a prime because it is the multiplicative identity.
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word 'philosophy' comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia) , which literally means 'love of wisdom'.
Any combination of syllable count may be used per line. Do avoid mirror images as this will detract from the free style feel. The line breaks serve as punctuation and no caps used.
