To see a world in a grain of sand

Auguries of Innocence is a poem of 132 lines by William Blake, possibly written in 1803 but published in 1863. It is the first four verses, however, that found popularity.

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
I studied the poetry of Blake when I was at university and committed a number of verses from his works to memory. Years later, a good friend and mentor, Zane Ibrahim reminded me of the above four lines to help me see the light at a time of emotional turmoil.
It is to honour that moment that I have designed the following poster series.
