Meditation On The Two Of Swords


Mark Andrew Holmes

"What you see may not always please you,

But you will see."—

The world turns on its axis,

And wheels majestically, with a kind of ponderous rapidity, around the Sun,

Which, in turn, wheels with majestic, eonic speed

Around the galactic center—

And that carrying the galaxy with it

Outward from the point where the great word "Be!" was said,

And what we know pales into insignificance.

...Those with wisdom may see, in this mind-boggling intensity,

In which it is easy to become lost,

A spirit of conformity,

Blind and bearing two epeés,

Waiting, seated, to receive divine wisdom.
