The Eternal Touch... A Poem.
Not part of...we are the universe!
Our complete journey revealed in a dream
The Eternal Touch
I closed my weary eyes today
and after a moment’s pause,
my body seemed to expand,
just like diaphanous gauze.
Larger and larger I became,
Until I could not be seen:
except as an ephemeral mist,
with a pale, transluscent sheen.
In this vision, or so it seemed,
I became as one with the stars;
in the primal soup of the universe;
at the birth of Venus and Mars.
I hung poised as the world stood still;
then like water down a drain,
every molecule known as "me,"
Flowed back together again.
Rushed together, but would not stay
at my customary size.
I continued to shrink and shrink:
soon unseen by human eyes.
Here I found in my minute state;
even smaller than a quark:
inside was another universe,
softly glowing in the dark.
Reluctantly, I then awoke,
from this extraordinary reverie:
glad to have felt the eternal touch,
But content (for a while) to be me.
