About Moondance

I looked outside
the window of time,
across the faceless
of eternity.
I saw you,
yet unborn,
with probing
curious toys,
I watched you
pulsing in deep
hidden darkness
like a wondrous galaxy,
glimpsed your tiny
scarcely a millimeter,
that shall shape
worlds and touch
the face of tomorrow,
resting against your memory-
less head, sleeping
the sleep of hope.
touched to tears,
I have peered
over the shoulder
of God, glimpsed
His fearful hand.
And who shall you be?
You shall be
Sleep your shaping sleep my child
and dream our faces.
