The Dreamer

Thomas Wilson
On Vision (January 2021)
Inward Light

To dream
Is to stand at the Gate of Creation,
arms akimbo, one foot planted firmly
at the Edge of Eternity.
The other foot solidly moored
In the Patterns of Reality.
Your body humming with the Eternal Dichotomy of advancement
and retreat as one’s life proceeds
to the warm, unknowable embrace of non-being.
To many, this journey can disappoint
or it can be the final point in a masterful life.

Thomas Wilson is a member of Utah Friends Fellowship (IMYM).
