Seizing the future by its wings

In the winged abode
Stealthy shadows move seasons,
Radiant lights reflect suns,
Whole universes contract
Consciousness ascends its slopes
Bringing and taking images.
Only in the high regions
Are white transparencies drawn
Marble walls hidden
Magnificent games written
Gigantic transformations designed.

Eyes looking inward
Crossing the threshold of the abode
Seizing the future by its wings
Tying the past by its feet
Lifting up futures
Raising understandings.

Time stops
To see the light pass
Illuminating everything
With sweetness,
With kindness,
With infinite perfection
Emanating from the center of my heart
