Seeing, lacking sight.
A glass within my dusky room
Heavy eyes reflect to mine.
By happy chance made yearning
I fall through fractured lines
A sense reveals a passage,
Unbinding mists of fable time.
Resound in mirrors, rise in smoke
Peace; lean in to find,
A living will, a river wild;
Cryptograms mistake the mind.
There, a myriad of souls subsist
Human forms / face disguised,
In search of self, a living reflection
Streams of heaven, whole and white.
The dream inside the dream designed
In subtle shapes through a golden light,
As every ripple was called to spring
A floating castle in the sky.
At the center of the luminous rooms
Seven mansions made entwined.
Resplendent like a radiant day
A Crystal Jewel, the Threefold Eye.
Screams for life as the shadows rose
Penetrate through walls that bind,
Discerning eyes that closely gazed -
The haunt of death implied.
Safeguard this vessel with armor
That the gloom of night shall die.
Like a warrior once enslaved fell thrice
Found in glory and revived.
Lamenting voices, fade to silence
In these narrow rooms that guise,
The Interior Castle,
The Sum and Whole of life.
Traverse the path of this untold land
Let vision tell wrong from right,
Expose inside, extracting fact
To be wounded in the midst of dawn
Scar, unmask my sight!
Walls torn down;
