    ! On a wing and a prayer

    Icarus
    has had a bad press
    throughout history
    as some sort of moral metaphor
    for a man who challenged
    Intelligent Design
    and/or the gods
    and failed, in a narrow-minded view

    A young man’s ambition
    and perhaps devotion
    drew him towards the heavens
    why not
    and science had not developed very far
    so how was he to know
    except by experiment

    I’d like to think that as he dropped
    out of a cloudless Greek sky
    out of mythology
    out of Breughel’s painting
    out of Auden’s mindfulness

    he was caught before the third and last bobbing up
    by a bevy of compassionate mermaids
    and returned gently to land
    to live again perhaps under
    an assumed name

    while the mermaids sang to each other his story
    across the seven seas
    who whispered it to men
    in the off-shore breeze
    as a moral story telling how

    heartfelt prayer always reaches heaven
    there to be taken into account
    but science is dodgy, make sure
    you get it right and
    it will be your servant

    and when one day with heaven’s consent
    you build a better vehicle to ‘conquer’ space
    though how untrue a phrase
    perhaps Apollo would be
    a safer name since Icarus Two
    somehow doesn’t have that ring about it. read more »

    ! The Secret, Treasured World of Metaphor

    True, I can rhyme – endwords, and inner too;
    fangle fine assonance, like thought made new;
