Back Next Obviously

That we both see the tree
is obvious to me
and that we each can draw
his dream tree
is obvious to me
but that there is a tree
that is deeper than you and me
whose being is of the Godhead
and whose form is formless
yet may be depicted
like a symbol emerging
from another world
an archetypal snake
said to be the deeper hint
of the tree
is really not obvious
to you or me.

Irwin R. Shaw - June 7th 1985
