I dream the dream of two pillars,
promising greatness and safety;
one a mirrored reflection -
reaching into the void of life;
they haunt my midnight dreams.
Often are they the backdrop
of the nightly play haunting my sleep.
Deep within my dreams, the first
is erected with the hardest stone
and the narrowest path
that broadens with each upward step.
The second calls with shallow glitter,
as firm as a sand castle spreading its call
in the winds of time;
its path is broad offering riches,
but cannot promise with its
slipping, sandy slope under foot and
its narrowing path upwards,
is God’s Eternal Covenant!
