Waking/Longing

Waking

Awaken, remember
to your roots
To the base of it all
The full spectrum
of every color
red, blue, black
lust, disgust, devastation
all flavors
every sensation
beyond your training
beyond your guru
Through all the fierce, cloudy mirrors…comes
Purity
Emptiness
Home


Longing

I want it all
Every bit
Flesh in my teeth
Bone in my heart
Whiskers on kittens
Death in our pupils
Every pore open
Every cell breathing…
everything, all of it, all the time
Going deeper
Going down
Beneath every surface
Still
Focused
Pathways of sensation
extending in every direction
I want it all
From root to crown
From base to ground
The whites on my fingertips
The taste in my mouth
Sound inside me and through me…
sound above and below me
Elements infused
Nature alive
Is it mine?
Is it mine?
How silly you ask
and ask
me again.
