Minerva is watching
Through her owls
People are hovering
Hidden by cowls
All of your efforts
Weakly displayed
Naked and vulnerable
Making the grade

Initiate in waiting
For wisdom’s voice
Do you remember
If you had a choice?
Ancient beliefs
In modern-day
Never to falter
Never to stray

Minerva is watching
Owls balance scales
Will you surrender
Will you prevail?

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
