Heaven in a Wild Flower

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the Palm of your Hand,
and Eternity in an Hour.

When the Soul Slept in Beams of Light 
God Appears & God is Light
To those poor Souls who dwell in Night 
But does a Human Form Display
To those who Dwell in Realms of day

~William Blake from “Auguries of Innocence”

To fall head long into the depths
of a dandelion puff ball,
captured in its intricacy,
a seeded symmetry
lined with delicate dewdrop drizzle.

To know the cosmos is contained
within the commonplace,
the God of Light and Living Water
no further away
than my back yard.
~EPG

  1. I will never,ever look at a dandelion in quite the same nonchalant way again. Once more, I am reminded that what is seen with the naked human eye is not always the truth and the reality of the totality of what is there. This is true not only for beautiful flowers which last but a millisecond in the Creator-Gardner’s time as compared to the human soul that He created for an eternity.
