Glass

I saw the glass in front of me and noted behind 
                and below 
                        and above 
                                and to the right 
                                        and to the left it was all the same…
 
Instinctively I picked up the hammer and shattered the one in my path.
 
Slivers of glass exploded and collapsed and flowers 
        and gardens 
                and streams 
		and puffy white clouds 
and blue skies
filled the non-space that was
previously the glass blocking my path…
My heart cried out from in my chest, “My God what beauty, what beauty my God.” And I looked to the left and to the right and called out to those who were near… And then, before my very eyes the flowers and gardens and the streams and the puffy white clouds and the blue skies imploded and became a wall of glass. Instinctively, I reached for the hammer but found only a growing twig… Tears flowed down my breast as I heard only one word from the unseen realm: “Patience”
