Sunny Sunday Afternoon

William Blake wrote:

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.

which is beautiful. It's one of my favorites. It goes on to condemn animal cruelty in a very eloquent and profound manner.

Then I did this:

Amsterdam upside down in a wine glass. (Looking at them now, I would have wished for a better camera. I only had my phone at the time. Also I would have wished for a cleaner glass. Good thing I didn't notice that when I drank the wine.)

The sight in my wineglass led me to write:

to see the world through a glass of wine
and sunshine in the water
hold a glass in the palm of your hand
and eternity turns into an hour

Which is completely irreverent of Blake's heartfelt piece. But it seemed so apt.
