Apokatastasis Panton

Day 5: Card: The Emperor


He is
the first glass-maker, the first to love the density of things in his own image.

He is
the snake who eats his tail, the self-consuming Flame.

He is
the Sieve-lader, who would carry the ocean; the bat scryer, and the deaf singer.

He is
the geometer who measures the heavens with a square circle, and One is his number.

He is
the thrice judged, thrice damned, the Dweller in the Night.

And yet... he is and can become.

For he was First, and will be Last to walk upon the earth and know himself: Beloved.



1. Apokatastasis panton: the doctrine that all that is, is capable of redemption.
