I remember reading this about 20 years ago, and thinking “Wow..did I really write this?” I vaguely remembered sitting on my bed at my parents house in 1975, home from college. Sometimes in the contrast of being back in my past, the best writing would rise up.
And so, I don’t specifically remember writing this poem. That’s probably why it is so good. Maybe I channeled it….hmmmm. It was before I knew what channeling was.
It was before I did formal meditation, and somehow the meditative quality is completely intact.
See what you think, what you feel….
my life is with You live in me in you
come be inside me now i sing for you inspire all songs
no whispers in other rooms can touch me now
my pulse beats songs in my ears of life and love with You
my voice runs through channels of beams of love, through caves of echos in my head carried by my breathwind
the speed of light comes traveling
You are standing on a streak of love
i open my eyes and see the time is here for striking hour of love
open door dark and dust scatter brilliant sparkling splitting love
all things crystallized now flow
all things solid brick now melt
all things wound tightly tangled now stretch now curve
all muscles are felt
all braincells are unlocked
are given wings
are told the sun is just the beginning
that there are more beyond than beyond
are told that bodies are jobs to be carried out
that the design is loving
is told that words can do this
is told that the song doesn’t end when the singer does
is told that the singer’s end is in body only
that the voice and breath find new homes in higher love, in redder hearts
my life travels to black space and white light and back to You
boomerang curve swiftly running you catch me
and hold me like dear life
You are the spawning ground i return to
whoever is to thank, i thank You
