the soul is egg-shaped
tethered to the earth
by seven cords
and seven cords ascend into
the research isn’t complete
do those cords simply wrap around
and meet one another
where the universe ends
or are up and down
if the connections are cut above
or if they wither
those below thicken
the soul becomes dense
those with this condition may
live a full life
but they are dead though they breathe
if the cords below are severed
death is immediate
but the soul will not be
strong enough to ascend
and will crack, leak, dissolve
the mystery then
how do the cords become
thin as a single strand
of spider silk
until they disappear in harmony
taking the egg with it

I was drawn in from the opening line. Beautiful. This touched my own egg-shaped soul.
So, if our soul is egg shaped, can we keep a dozen of them in an egg carton? 💫
Yes, but you should keep them refrigerated and wash your hands after handling them.
😆 Can you make my soul a deviled egg?
Ha ha ha–you’re cracking me up.
Omelette you finish.
Are you on an egg website, cuz you’re beating me!
Such accusations! I can’t help it if I make you scramble for words!
Hmm. You’ve got me whipped!
Only until you form stiff peaks.
Omg! Hahaha!! Ah, this chick is gonna go crash in her nest. I’m gonna be up early for Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving! 💋 That was hilarious!!
Theology (or something like that) :))
Definitely some of my funkier metaphysics.
I love this crow
