Making Sense – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“A myth is a way of making sense in a senseless world. Myths are narrative patterns that give significance to our existence.” Rollo May

Making Sense

In the center of a myth is its beauty,
a timeless seed of experience
unrelated to fact or truth,
and understood only in the 
languages of the heart,
mostly spoken on the margins
and in the shadows of the soul,
seen by those who want to see,
known by those who trust
what it is to story gods
and lesser beings.

  2. I find that myth makes better sense of the world than trying to use logic for that purpose.
