consciousness

Waves of thoughts

About the many paths

Ebb and flow

On the shores of my awareness.

The sands of time shift

Through my mental grip

But remain the same.

The sun shines on it all,

Unaffected.

When some thoughts come

They clog up

Awareness of the

Present moment

And put you to sleep.

Before they return,

Clean out

Your thought pipe

Watch this moment flow

And stay awake.

 

Yesterday, I looked at you

From my world

And saw you.

Yes,

Only 10,000 miles away

Invisible and mute.

Can that be,

You so far away from me?

So today, I look as you

From your world

And saw…

Wait,

I have forgotten myself

Way back there in the distance.

Now, I am traveling back

Back towards that self,

With you,

To see as we see,

Our selves as the world.

I gave in

To being swallowed up

By Emptiness.

I thought It would be

My new home,

But then It spat

Me back out

To be Fullness

In this old world.

I feel at home again.
