Our Eyes

September 24, 2015 life

Our eyes
are the eyes
of Spirit,
born to see itself.

encumbered in flesh,
yoked to a primate brain,
our vision narrows,
until only what is wanted,
or what is feared,
is seen.

there is a seed
in every mind,
a vault
bigger than ourselves
that holds
it’s own heritage,
a gateway
to what birthed us,
a path back home.
