The Mag #140, "A Secret Whispered"



A
mystery
whispered


"freedom" is born,
as an oath takes flight
and Fathers' words become
law, the Eye of Horus, from his
capstone guards a secret, unblinking.

This is for "Magpie Tales #140".  The controversy behind the meaning of this symbol is rather intriguing and all sides present an interesting perspective.  I don't doubt there is significant meaning behind this image, I just am not sure we will ever know the truth.

I love your triangular shaped poem that mimics the pyramid shaped icon. This reminded me of reading the text at the beginning of Star Wars episodes. Thank you for sharing, Margaret.

I too have heard so many things about this, from the believable to the ridiculous. Kind of neat to wonder about it though!

A pyramid poem in every sense ... wonderful!!

I like your pointing out that the oath itself is a sentient being, capable of flight
