Darjeeling, Bergamot and Walnuts

9.12.15

It's all around you


It's all around you 

at the doors of perception

A leap of conciousness
 in an instant
the mystery falls away

... a what if scenario

It happens every day 
in an analogous way

The secrets are right before us
... in plain view
Just looking isn't enough

I see a pristine coastal lake
I hear the haunting call of a loon
My brother is near me
beholding the spectacle
A vibrant ecosystem
spared of motors

Like Columbus' "India"
the significance evades us

... in plain view
the secrets are right before us
the mystery falls away
  in an instant
 a leap of conciousness
 at the doors of perception
 It's all around us
awaiting our faculties of mind
to awaken
