Expansion of the mind…
The darkness like a sheet of studded velvet,
draws across the closing sky,
and my heart wanders,
memories like warm tufts of breeze
intermittently caress my cooling skin,
and thoughts as if stone obelisks
rise from the sands of my inner mind,
reaching, aspiring to light.
Time beats as if a heart,
pumping the surging moments of life,
contiguous instances of collective experience,
the very facets of gathering thought,
and as I reach up to hold but one,
another assumes its place,
as the echo of beats resound so strongly within.
Thoughts drift like meandering rivulets,
splitting continuously into finer multitudes,
smaller microcosms of reality,
ever moving, beyond sight and imagination,
yet all resounds in time’s arms, in reality’s womb,
as I wander freely,
ever-nearer my horizons in bloom.
And as thoughts expand and diminish
senses meld and adopt a new perspective,
an outpouring of realisation,
an expansion of acceptance without judgement,
as life and a sentient mind make peace in possibility,
and see beyond the periphery of knowing,
to imbibe even more.
Life: limitless, mind: limitless, possibility: limitless,
yet we live in a world of limits,
or do we?
