There is something deep within that is capable of reflecting the higher, when one is open.


Lake of the Mind

On a mountain top both high and wide
There lies a lake called the mind
With its glistening waters both still and bright
It reflects the moon's enchanting light
And the moon reflects the mighty sun
From what great source we know not from

The darkness hangs upon its shore
Forever embracing its looming form
Until the blooming light of day
Does hide her eternal starry face
Never touch, but always near
Longing for each other dear

And from the heavens there grows a tree
Adorned with many branches and leaves
Within those leave run great veins
Within them too run the same
Worlds within worlds within its fold
Where its roots lie no one knows

Within the garden there grows a rose
Its petals yet tightly closed
Its thorns are sharp like gaping teeth
Nestled safe in a shroud of leaves
Fed by the sun, caressed by land
If you want to receive hold open your hand
