Are you getting sleepy? Please comment on this poem?
You will want to close your eyes
to let the easy warmth
of smooth words
swallow sharper syllables,
envelope them in shushing sibilance.
Feel how every word curves, weaves
serpentine in the sand of sliding sound.
Let loose the twine that ties your mind
Feel your soul expand into the space
created as you now allow expanse, full liberty
for every kind of unbound thought.
Step light along the precipice of sanity
aware that you will never fall
no matter how precarious things seem
because you balance perfectly
The dance of genius is one at which you are adept.
Now your eyes see not these words
but what they speak:
Consider the things you wish
and let the light change colors in your mind
to suit the mood you’ve sought.
Let these tones into your mind,
that grow into the things you need to see.
Remember every thought is true creation
and all created things are equal in imagination.
See how indigo and fuchsia meld on each edge,
observe how easily a sparrow makes her song blend
into the low hum of wind that crosses continents and oceans.
Your mind continues to increase quick,
prismatic, wide like sheen on untouched water.
It intersects with everything and becomes a part,
welcoming the unity
not as surrender but as victory.
You never will capitulate again
to those who say that things must stay
or ever were
You are released to be what you will
When I snap my fingers
you will awake.
Note, though: I did not snap my fingers. None of you are awake. Thought you might understand your day better if you knew that, going forward. ;)
