"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"


Elusive voices led me to this spot
Where the canvas of millennia lay unfurled before me
A portal through dimensions- touching celestial entities
As perspective alters to reveal reality
The spherical haven I call home
dissolves with the very essence of time and matter
Revelation of space through the eyes of infinity
Cosmic tranquility surrounds me- engulfs me
As I transcend beyond the realm of being
This image of grandeur frozen before my eyes
Concepts of direction breaking down
Before be space- behind me earth
The self loses physical constraint
I am one within the eternal cosmos
I extend beyond the horizon- part of an endless being
My eyes open to face the light
The message of the universe within me
As the canvas bursts into flame
The connection dissolves as concepts collide
From this singularity of thought
Time is conceived once more.

The author's comments:
This is an attempt at illustrating a moment I had once while on vacation in the Caribbean. We were sleeping overnight on a small sailboat, and I was laying out late at night looking at the milky way. Suddenly it actually began to look like three-dimensional space instead of just the sky above. Then my whole perception changed, and it literally felt like space was in front of me and the earth was behind me, and there was no up or down. This strange, almost out-of-body moment may have lasted for hours. All I remember is when I came back, it seemed like time suddenly started moving again, and I hadn't even realized that it had stopped.
