Cheryl Eggleston | Under Earth
The canvas is gallery wrapped.
I wrote a poem for this painting.
What lies sleeping
Beneath your feet?
Physical science describes
The earth’s crust, mantle & core.
Ancient civilizations are
Buried under layers of sand & rock.
We dig to discover, the sleeping
History of man’s passage through time.
But, is solid earth solid?
Quantum physics will tell -
Reality is not what we think it is.
Reality is an illusion inside our heads.
What we believe, is.
So then, guard your thoughts,
Let them be light, be kind.
Keep sweet your slumber.
Should you begin to dig
Into memories long forgotten
May you find gentle forgiveness sleeping
There in the UnderEarth of your mind.
