Let Your Eyes Cradle The World (Freedom And Fire) - Poem by Ray Quesada

Let your eyes
cradle the world before you
cradle and admire,
as a mother sees all
possibilities, freedom
and fire
on the clean slate
that is her newborn child

- The landscapes before us-
symbols of our internal,
eternal, infernal
chaos and beauty;
confusion and ugliness;
eternity and timelessness;
-let your eyes
cradle the world before you...


Poet's Notes about The Poem

stream-of-consciousness poem i wrote in about 60 seconds - the only part i changed was that i added 'and fire' as the sixth line. :) -some days i'm just feelin it, ya know?
