PROGRESS

I see people in another country
at the touch of a button,
hear them instantly.
I fly at the speed of sound;
electronic marvels work for me.
I am educated, entertained,
and rebuilt by technology ...

Science is flying.

I see the bold power of authority
crushig old truth--and the
new flower of creativity,
individual candle flames doused,
pure energy hamstrung,
and ancient games, called
tradition, twisted into piety ...

Humanity is plodding.

-- Delma Luben

...into oblivion, if they're not careful! This poem is deep. One needs to unravel the layers to grasp its profound meaning.

God Bless you, Delma for your insight.

You're right on target with this insightful poem! Very well done!
Reviewed by richard cederberg 6/5/2006
Yes . . . humanity is plodding under the shroud of too many gods and science is flying to anesthetize the masses with a confusing flood of information, and satiate the unwary with too many wolves in sheeps clothing.

I like this construct Delma.

It provokes one as an amalgam of antipathy, expectancy, and hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Good job
Richard
