The Mysterious Spirit (Poem)
We inhabit a disenchanted world
all faded and colourless.
The magic dissolved amid
cries of cynical rationalism.
The hope of a utopian paradise
has long since bitten the dust.
Life’s mystery has collapsed under
the weight of social media.
The potential of technological advance
reduced to mere gimmicks and gadgetry.
The quest for existential meaning
exchanged for fifteen minutes of fame.
Humanities longings and destiny
appears to be sadly in the hands of the clowns.
The world is in desperate need of re-enchantment
and the fulness of the magical kingdom.
May the mysterious Spirit come upon the breeze
re-enchanting and weaving a magical spell
upon those with hearts open to receive
the Spirits enduring presence.
