What Did You Find?

Have you ever closed your eyes
to better taste some sweet sensation,
and then been startled when you
opened them again?

What did you see? What did you find?

Sunrise, and an eager vessel
tugging at the shore �
Master, lead us where your heart desires.

A giant anvil heaped with stars,
joyfully beaten by legions of ghosts.

Upon your life a pair of hands,
blessed by more than reason will allow.
