POEM: The Science of An Inner Life

I am a flag that flies stiff
In the wind over you,
Moved by forces no one ever sees.
I am taught control from my very birth.
That it is control which turns the very earth,
From west to east in a gradual dawn,
From shadow to light, from evening till morning.
But I have been gifted with no such wisdom.
I am just this flag
That signals a love for you
That wildly waves and knows you as true,
That draws attention to graceful silences
Which comprise the unearthly science
That is the inner life of all things.
