Sonnet 04 - Poem by doug bentley

the self to brink of paradise may rise
but dim that vision remains, distant
until self surrenders and self dies.
then vision brightens in an instant!

veil torn, new eyes new vision behold;
new ears new communications hear.
the new Man arises from man of old
to meet vision as vision draws near.

a new earth forms from old earth;
old earth's transfigured by new.
veil rent in second birth
new self becomes selves two!

two selves dwell in one new self;
the heavenly Self and self of earth.
