Let Your Eyes Cradle the World (Freedom and Fire)


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...
