Face of the world

Face of the world

Have you ever imagined

looking at the world’s face

and into its eyes

Have you ever thought of

speaking with the world’s mind

Have you ever felt within your heart

the fires of the world burn

No, you’re still too closed off

for all of that to occur

you still don’t know your own mind

and your own heart

and so the world mirrors you

by appearing as shapeless

and meaningless as you are

But if you looked carefully into the mist

you would see a blurry figure

of mountains and forests and rivers

forming itself

it still hasn’t taken sharp contours

and is represents an array of possibilities

more than a universal truth

but as you learn to see in the mist

and you open your body

to the winds of heaven

then you will be able to feel the world

as it truly is
