SENSES                                                                                             

 

Hearing, seeing, feeling, smelling and tasting

These five senses

Are by design

Fences

 

By design

They confine and blind

Us, and occupy

Our mind

 

Occupy

With blinders in place

Keep the horse in the barn – at all costs

Far from the open plain

 

Where s/he would run wild and free

Without a care

Everywhere

Driven by senses

 

Of the outside

Wild

Free

Without a care

 

Everywhere

Hearing the silence

Seeing the shadows

Feeling

 

New

And reborn

Smelling the colorful explosion

Of a new morn

 

Tasting

Love

But

Wait!

 

Hear me

Come back!

Look at yourself

Please

 

 

How do you feel?

In response

I glance down in submission

At the stained and faded tile at my feet

 

I taste

The back of my throat

Dry

And sore

 

So sorry

It must have been a dream

Both

I fear

 

Light Blue

Sense filled

Pleasantness

Emptiness

 

They know I am present

And are pleased

As am I

With the being

 

One with

All

Knowing

Love

 

Knowing

Now

That is all

In this light blue emptiness

 

Standing alone

Without a trace, without a shadow

Understanding finally

The finality

 

Of my truths
