Celtic Knot

What to think   of a design 
as simple & complex as a Celtic knot   
from the Book of Kells   whose outline 
expresses a paradigm   perfectly-balanced 
in faultless symmetry?

What to think of the sceptic   not 
relationally immersed in its cosmology   
who believes   if he could pull 
on a thread   this would unravel 
the weave of all that’s been taught?

What to think   of those who’ve not 
tried to deny their losses  not 
sought to explain eternity   beyond 
the drawing of an artful design 
a pattern of noughts & crosses?
