“if we wake to discover”

Waiting for the light arisen to flood inside the prison.

And in that time…
Kind words alone will teach us. No bitterness will reach us.
Reason will be guided in another way.

All in time…
But the clock is another demon that devours our time in Eden.

In our Paradise…
Will our eyes see well beneath us?
Flowers all divine?

Is there still time if we wake to discover in life a precious love?
Will that waking become more heavenly?
