The Dark Ages

8"x 10" mixed media on canvas


The Golden Apples
hung from the branches
of Science & Mystery,
tasting of ashes
from a dying dream

And this taste divided
Existence into good, evil
and the spectrum between both

Blinded by this ignorance,
We cut down
Tree of Knowledge
to make anthologies
glorifying Humanity's Ego

But it takes a true Seeker
to find among these false prophets
the volume that represents your
Book of Life.
