Unicorn


Have you see the Unicorn?
He hides amidst a forest of words
Which make him hard to see

No
Not
Nothing
Is not
Cannot
Ever
Be

But he is there
At the edge of the wood
He sometimes comes to stand
To enlighten a world that does not see
The fabric of his land

See
See there
Beneath the tree
See his silver coat
That gleams without the sun
See his slender
Spiralled horn
That says
We are one

See how with head tossed back
His feet strike sparks from out the ground
See
With eyes of smouldering fire

Looks he around
This Unicorn
The symbol
Out of which ideas are born

Some say he is a myth
He cannot be
Alas as they pass by
They do not even see the tree
But they should never mock his fabled crown
His concept
Is the path
To where
True answers may be found

And should you think this talk is foolish and unsound
I shall not be offended
Feel free
To keep on looking at the ground
