Characters In A Dream

We sat together discussing many a thing.
"One day," she said, "I saw my own image
From a mirror and at that very stage
I asked myself, 'who am I and how did come to be?
How come I know and how come I see?'
I replied, "You were asking a question so intelligent
Which can only occur to one who is diligent
In the quest for the meaning of life and being.
For reality may be different from what we're seeing.'
So we went on talking about God and Heaven
Conversing from ten o'clock till eleven.
We talked of Angels and demons and Hell,
And of the Scriptures and the stories they tell.
Then said she something I'll never forget,
A new meaning given to our religious mindset:
"To my inner being it certainly does seem
We are characters in a bigger mind's dream".
