Hunting for an elusive enigmatic dream

I built an inner sphinx that dreamt for me,

in the dream I glimpsed the deft creators scheme

and caught the coin spinning perpetually

that he tossed into the darkness. I made

still the waters of time, the sphinx chose tears

carefully, weeping for war, tears not displayed

where those for the poor, the disappearing

children. I pulled coins out of time's waters,

each had a face of the dispossessed, the

last coin imprinted with I and the creator.

I buried my haul in the garden, trees

of many fruits grew, the sphinx wore a thorny crown,

a new type of fruit from hidden tears grown.

Supremely mystical. AND very liberation-theology. I am simply amazed at this construct:

 

an inner sphinx that dreamt for me

 

Completely unique.

Well framed piece with an unusual analogy of the sphinx. I believe the Egyptian ones were philanthropic but the Greek ones rather nasty.. Curiously interesting.
