the walls of a city
in the background

a walkway leading
to a scene where the sky is green

a reflection found in an artist’s mirror

abstract pictures of people
without faces

between beams of light
shadows of purple

a procession of monks
beyond a row of decorated pillars

watching the red sands of the desert
crashing against the black horizon

a symbol of life suspended at the edge of the dream

the eye of our awakening
over the throne
of the muse

a figure of a man turned to stone

is where the statue of death
in the garden of the Lotus

the picture
of what might have been
had we
chosen to believe
