reflections on a winter morn

frozen light
suspended in time
frozen dreams
imagined and sublime

early morning
darkness slowly abates
consciousness quickens
the sleeper awakes

transitory perceptions
visions left behind
worlds hidden
from the mind

harken voyagers
with limited epistemology
think upon
this construct 'reality'

hidden variables
your models eschew
vulgar unobservables
an ontological stew

pray consider
strict materialists all
something lost
in man's Fall

fragile understanding
truth or lies
trusting naught
with Positivist eyes

pray Science
thou informest men
unresolved e'er
why arrogance then

temporal prison
the philosopher's derision
what then
make a decision

amazing grace
destroys any wall
have faith
Christ restoreth all

bright transcendence
the universe clear
bright belief
nothing to fear
