Eye Witness

Updated on November 24, 2012
Source

When that time stood still

just one inch and separated

finally ... centuries folded back their moments

as I, but not just me, was seeing

every wonderful thing expressed

all being conceived, and

every reason justified

for all eternity.

I couldn't help but laugh

at the whole face of my history

displayed and laid out for my adoration.

Without a doubt, a slice of time

rolled itself out

for my temporary viewing.

As the experiences faded

I held on to that scene

as if I, the me, here now

had just woken up from a dream

that held me captured in that charade.

That after morning coffee and many temptations

I'd soon forget any meaning since betrayed in this:

My seeming world ... then,

and even now ...

In my decomposing, aching body ...

everything we know ... we really know!

And we are all entitled as the bearers ...

eye witnessess to the divine, and the obscene ...

I saw myself there, in the beginning of simplicity.

The beauty is extreme

to behold while separated

in this (mean) time ...

And in between our sources

and seeming sacrifices

is a purposeful scheme

and proceeding.

      Purposeful and proceeding, with my awareness or its absense. The beauty is extreme with my awareness or its absense. That we are invited into awareness brings peace to our every search.

      Thank you for this. So few have experienced the existence between heartbeats. Life can be so long. Thank you again

      I like the way this poem loses itself within itself and the imaginative way you allowed us to see into your thoughts. It seems to be words of discovering "you" with all of the various "persons" we can all be at time. Very, very nice.

      Very deep thinking and pondering, CM. I get impressions of meaning, but am going to let it 'settle' before replying more thoroughly. It's very personal with you and very significant, needing little from others, methinks. In any case, it deserves more than a cursory reply about its meaning or message which I could give now. More later . . .
