God Said,

"The sky rains darts of ice
The clouds are terrified
And all things glass and chrome -
I want them done, I want them gone ...
I want to turn a sunset on
Cause the moon to rise
Feel my mind grow long
Commanding stars to cross the skies -
For your skin is winning still
Your breath is liberty
Your eyes can brave the light
For I gave you them to see
From afar your tree still grows
All my air still free
Live the best you can
But when you fall, come to me.
I am extremity:
The dark to which you go
The light from where you came
I am eternity in time, my eye
Unlidded, open, warm,
And my blueprint is your own".
