I am remote
I am remote
By Tony DeLorger © 2011
I am remote, an island within an endless ocean,
life lapping upon my shores, refuse strewn at its edge.
I dare not touch these aberrations of humanity,
these remnants of life left behind.
They remind me of my past, my reliance,
my captivation by the talons of striving.
I once fell to the enticement of importance,
the raw seduction of bloated arrogance.
Now, I need sun and breath,
and the freedom of mind to create,
to wallow in the beauteous stream of possibility.
I am remote, yet a part of all that is.
In my surrender I bow to the universal,
the grain of worlds, the worlds of grain.
My mind the width and breadth of creation,
within which I explore my limits.
I am an island of dreams,
a pure pristine beach of hope,
basking in the infinite,
the spark of me alive in my every thought.
