True

Dreaming light and waking in the dark - We
Perpetually relive the Fall
Eternally recreate Creation 
Receive revelation
both asleep and awake - all

Lost in the belly of a whale
On the back of a bull 
gliding over ocean swells
Lying in the rushes, under the white weight of a swan
Traveling to the underworld
Emerging into starlight.
 
It’s all true for you and me (and everyone we know).

Look--see if is not so
We became human
Amid polarities
hope and despair
shame and pride 



And we have trod the earth--an armed race
With fire to illuminate or incinerate
 
Forever, deep within
We carry images and experience
of paradise, of exile
And a longing to return
