Parables and allegories

Ancient mystics
used imagery to tell
a psychological unveiling
of man’s true nature
and power in imagination.

These wisdoms unfold,
through parables and allegories.
Its only while being present,
and through the magic
of the spiritual categories;
coincidence, mystery and surprise,
that help reveal their clever disguise.

Some read these stories
and see them as historical,
others know that they are
really beautifully metaphorical.

We are each, author, producer, director,
critic and all the actors in our play,
as we conduct the themes of our lives through
whatever we believe, claim, accept and say.
