VISION OF THE FUTURE

VISION OF THE FUTURE
by John Yeo

The future is just a blink of the eye
We have not yet reached the next blink.
The blink just gone by is history
A few blinks in the past I took a breath.
When my eyes opened to a harsh brightness
Dazzling my senses as I came through
A red haze of darkness to where?

The eyes that foresee the future
mirror the magic of the past.
Eyes that once blinked attached to lives,
That built this present we inhabit.
When I sleep or my eyes are closed.
I inhabit a world of not now.
From suspended animation I wake
when I blink my way into the future.

The blind live in a magical present
built by patient sensual impression.
A future through the eye of a blind eye
Is darkness illuminated through thought.
Constructed by sensual expression,
Built by pure empathetic impression.
“Amazing Grace how sweet the sound,
I was blind but now I foresee”.
The future is just a blink of the eye.
