Beyond this dark, forgotten place
of cold and pointless emptiness,
in some fleeting wistful dream,
there shines a land far more sacred than
all the alien cathedrals and enigma-tomes
   of a thousand years
where a solitary lantern swings
at the distal edge of a very different reality,
that some other kind of man may dare call

Bruce...another reality, a dream scape or inside the door where an address announces living..."home" is where the heart is.

What a great poem, Bruce, One that particularly appeals to me and that I understand so well.
