A Cone or a Pyramid / Poem by Jenayah Hela Tekali

Poem by Jenayah Hela Tekali
 
 
A Cone or a Pyramid
 
Am I a cone , or an ancient pyramid
The grain of sand you always feed
You shape me the way you like
Am I your sacred dome , or your holy arch.
 
Sometimes I appear in Ancient Egypt
The hieroglyphs, its entombed script
Other times in the mythology of Eastern Asia
With spiritual Guru,or Lord Krishna.
 
Am I the Temple of Greece with intricate symmetry and balance
Standing for a glorious history encrypted in peace
Archaic, classical, geometric , hellenistic
A prototype for the Renaissance , its aesthetic.
 
Your mathematical shape designs me
Through Pythagorian symbolism and sacred geometry
I stand for numbers: one, two, three, and four
A rounded dervish knocking at your holy door.
 
The architecture of all civilizations is scripted in me
I take every shape and form of your anatomy
A pyramid , a square , and sometimes a circle
My eye detects every hint of your miracle.
 
Am I a cone , or an ancient pyramid
A sphynx of wisdom free of human greed
Shape me in every mathematical formula
Through space, meteorology, or celestial astra.
