Make mention of the new normal
Thinking that there ever really has been
A relativity decided by whomever is talking
from the lens of their perspective
we're all talking
LIfe's axis is making a big shift
A quantum move, a flow with or not
You decide how you will shift
Never think that Mother Earth will Not win
Her lung power far surpasses all of us combined
What's essential will win
There is NO normal in any of our days
We made up what we thought we needed
Illusions made safe our days
What is the essential left when all is surrendered?
Habitualized rituals laid waste to what was
And our very breath is surrendered

Sometimes I wake up with this line or sentence that one of my manymuses demands I give myself to. This was sort of like going into a dreamstate and channeling the unknown only I know it very well. I just re-read it and tweaked the form of it a bit I leave the words as they came to me. yikes..Putting it off foreverIt’s right over thereThat Thing that needs doingI want to put it off foreverIt’s in reaching distancethe tips of my fingerstrace its slick red surfaceIt smells of old metaland days of vulnerabilitygiven again and againI want to put it off forever That Thing that needs doing.Cause doing it putsan old ache in my bodythat leaves the touch of unrequited too closeto my surfaces.It has shattered texturethat rasps at my skinleaves hope raw and unattended to.There is something in thepain of it that holds forevercaptive.Or maybe it’s in the overwhelmof it that sabotages possibilitiesforever putting off the inevitabledance of change.Paradox is the sentinel to my forever That Thingjust over therein sightsmelling of blood ripping my fleshshedding my hopeclipping my wingsCalls from dead darkspace to do what needs doing.It’s the only wayto the Light.
