As the mind opens

Cross over to its shore
Of light and enlightenment
As the mind opens
And the world closes its door
As the door of perception
Opens its doors once more
And we enter its gates
And follow its way
As its master is the sun
And it's servant the moon
And it's children the stars
A family of multiverse
And word and world eternal
And as we leave this vast world
We will enter another
One filled with light and wonder
Never seen of again
But heard in its distance
We will then enter again
Birthed in the reverse
And in forward motion
And orbit its circles
As we rise to a new world
And sleep to an eternal age
