i turned my eye toward the future
and watched as lemurians returned.
stars guided sea. the weather
grew tempest. heavenly calm burned.
the sun's eye lifted gracious head
over civilizations. its clear beam
shed through time. time was dead.
eternity consumed all. from a dream
we had awoken. a single stone tablet
stood in our midst. we touched it.
we understood. hieroglyphics archaic,
a dot vibration of peace our minds lit.
the phoenix had arisen over ash of earth.
Man reborn, it was Kosmic Culture birth!
