A leaf fell from the ash tree

And rainbows burst through the light

As the geometer played with ideas

A reminder from the past dropped into sight

Delivering a message of inspiration

For the journey through the magical realms

Of time, space and chance

Held the power, and integrity

Of the directions held to be

For without this

The opportunity might be lost

And transient in its memory

But the Talisman

Held true

For eternity


The heart of the beholder
