{heaven on earth}

Floating silently in the pool of memories

Bobbing along the rolling currents of the amniotic fluid that surrounds

Gentle submersion into the reflection of unconditional

The space in between gravity and being set free into the atmosphere

Tucked in and cradled in the arms of the thing in which I am

If there is anything spiritual about living, this is it

Being held so sweetly into a full surrender

Hearing the lulling hush and familiar lullaby that ears listen at attention to

Nothing to see but patterns of fluid droplets across the eyeball,

Sun streaming through the thin skin providing a brilliant backdrop to the picture show in the skull

Hands spread along the surface as the rainbow line patterns ripple across the bottom

A secret language of the water that could make sense, but doesn't

Forever a mystery that cannot be solved

Heaven on Earth   

Heaven on Earth


So much happening in the observation of the all around

Mind dancing versus the completely still in reality

A stark contrast in the in between that is amusing somehow

But, listen

She is still singing her sweet song,

Remember you're right here, she sings

Everything is now

The gut wrench and subsequent release of the oh, yes

Easy to be

Still floating silently in the pool memories as the chest rises, then falls

Heaven on Earth
