Fickled Faith

Science and Religion

Fickled Faith (5-7-5 Poetry Suite)

.

.
What you cannot see

Becomes liability

If you don’t have Faith

.
Many mysteries

.

Can become realities

When you have true Faith

.

Waved the Earth goodbye

By believing man could fly

The result of Faith

.
Watch an object fall

When you push it off a wall

Gravity of Faith

.
What duplicity

About electricity

Had there been no Faith

.
Deep humility

Makes the best Humanity

When you trust in Faith

.
Not a big surprise

If you can’t believe your eyes

Then you must have Faith

.
So, keep Faith alive

Then free spirits will survive

There’s freedom in Faith

.

Author Notes There are many kinds of faith: religious, scientific, and humanitarian, for example.

I’ve tried to capture that here.


These stanzas are written in a 5-7-5 format, but are not intended to be haiku or senryu.
