“To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.” -William Blake, Auguries of Innocence (Poet, Painter, Printmaker) 1757-1827
Imagination can resurrect a dark and callous moment into the birth of a blossoming organism on an undiscovered planet. It gives us the ability to enhance our mind and character into an elevated state. It is human’s super sense. We should love our imagination and let it to grow with excitement to recreate life’s deepest turmoil. It has the power to make our personal and extended world a better place, and life, a more fulfilling journey.
This excerpt of poetry is excellent in showing how William Blake used and shared the power of imagination to recreate something that may be so ordinarily passed by, into a divine and unworldly experience all within the scope of the mind’s eye.
This artwork is made to help its viewers reflect upon the accumulation of insight this writer reveals. To be reminded of just one quote, may be a shame to his collection of mind.
