Hi, Daniel,

I haven't read sci-fi in so many years; although the name rings a bell, I can't remember ... maybe when the tide goes out ... Smile | :)

There is a "psychic" influence on this poem from the late Agha Shahid Ali's masterpiece , "Farewell:"
Quote:
excerpt:

I am being rowed through Paradise in a river of Hell:
Exquisite ghost, it is night.

The paddle is a heart; it breaks the porcelain waves.
It is still night. The paddle is a lotus.
I am rowed- as it withers-toward the breeze which is soft as
if it had pity on me.

Agha Shahid Ali (1949 ~ 2001)

«One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.» Salvador Dali
