I sit precariously on the edge of Gia…Mother Earth
Holding my balance.
Staring out into the place that has given us birth.
Feeling the forces…That want to pull me one way…Slip me another.
It’s only a short time before I discover….
The dividing line between yesterday and tomorrow
And in the moment….The two converge….
Future time, and Past time merge…
And what I behold…Is a soul changing sight.
To hold the moment..I grasp on tight.
From where I sit…I can see all illuminary orbs
The emplication of its expansiveness is too much for me to absorb.
A trillion Billion..They seem so close, and I can touch them
A ringing a Singing in the Atoms of my cells
Revive, come alive…There are secerets to tell
I want to feel the cold burning light with the tips of my fingers.
The impulse is so strong…That for a moment it lingers.
But I….Sit precariously on the edge Gia….Mother Earth.
The slighest move, will tip me and send me tumbling into the universe
to release me from Gia’s gravity…to float forever aimlessly
Up…..down, forward….reverse
In the vacuous interval, between the Astral bodies
So I I examine….
I am astounded and yet also confounded.
Conciously I am unaware of how my mind interpets what it sees,
From deep within…. somthing whispers to me…
That this is it…Where the answeres lay
If i could just throw back the veil….
This enigma would be revealed
I am on the cusp of a revelation
as I veiw the astronomical number of stars just beyond my reach
Yet I am filled with Trepidation
Why?….As Tommorow begins
I see the stars of yesterday lined up….
Aganist tomorrow in the lighter shade of the sun.
And I am transfixed as all things….Intertwine and intermix
I know that there is somthing more to see…
A deeper meaning that applies only to me
As if I, among all beings….Am Chosen to be the one.
I feel hesitation and doubt.
Because…beyond what I know…Is all that I don’t.
And then …..IT comes to me!
Between the time that is lost in the past….
And what is yet to be.
Is the life I live. This moment….now in which I breath…..
Is gone in a flash….Yet last an eternity
And as I’ve tried desperatly to find the balance in my existiance
without any assistance…..Facing constant resistance
And what?…Once this was revealed…Did I find?
The truth…That my time….
In sync with the rythems of Gia is short.
Of course….The stars in comparassion are infinate and endless
and have always held witness… to all that has come before…..
and all that is yet to transpire
Insprining us here on Earth Mother Gia…
with their eternal fire
A testimate to the insignifigance of our existance
And the futility of our persistance…
To NOT live in the moment
As we forever race towards tomorrow
Throwing away time that was only ours to borrow
Or forever carry the burdens of yesterday.
That hinder our journey…and get in the way
I…am of stardust….
And it is to there that someday all will be returned
But untill that moment comes….
This is my time to burn

Artist's Description

This is a insighfull piece that came to me… In the Twilight between the waking concious mind and the Sleeping unconcious mind.
All dreams have meanings…All are secerets for us to reveal…but what we pull from the depth’s of our minds…Is the unique interpitation that is the way WE…as individuals see and experience this world…This life. This is a view into me.
A window into the way I see.
