VISION

_______

LISTENING TO THE MUSIC

PLAY ITS SOUNDS

AND THE MANTRA CHANT

THERE IN THE MIDST

OF IT ALL

I BEGAN TO SING

AS I SANG

THERE WAS A FORM

IN FRONT OF

MY CLOSED EYES

IT WAS DARK

THEN THE LIGHT

FORMED AROUND HER

SHE WAS SHROUDED

IN BLACK

AND I WAS SAD

I WAS WORRIED FOR HER

SHE SAID I BEEN

MOURNING

I SAID OVER WHO

SHE SAID OVER THE LOSS

OF HIM

I SAID I AM SORRY

SHE SAID NO I AM

GLAD YOU CAME

I THOUGHT YOU WOULD

NEVER COME BACK

I JUST SMILED

I THEN SAW A SMILE

FORM ON HER FACE

AND THE VEIL LIFTED

HER HANDS AND ARMS

BEGAN TO MOVE

SHE SAID WALK WITH ME

THEN APPEARED

A PATH INFRONT OF ME

JUST A PATH TO EACH

SIDE WAS DARKNESS

I DIDN'T WANT TO STRAY

THAT MOMENT

SO I WALKED WITHOUT

LOOKING TO THE SIDES

ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE

OTHER

I SAW BLACK TURN

TO RED

THEN RED TURN

TO SAND

AND THE SAND BECAME

JEWELS

AND THE JEWELS

THEN STONES

AND THE PATH THEN

WAS SOLID

AND I LOOKED AROUND

ALL AROUND

THERE THEY WERE

I SAW THEM ALL AGAIN

STANDING

DANCING

SINGING

PLAYING

AND LOVING

I LOOKED FORWARD

AND THEN

THERE WAS HER

SHE MOTIONED

TO ME

SO I BEGAN TO MOVE

IN THE FLOW WITH

MY HANDS AND FEET

AND I STOOD THERE

IN POSITION

MOVING IN THE POSES

TIL IT FORMED

IN MY HANDS

I FELT THE ENERGY

FLOWING IN AND DOWN

MY ARMS

IN A MOMENT IT

WAS THERE

AS PLAIN AS DAY

A FLOWER

YELLOW

AND SINGLE

I PRESENTED

IT TO HER

AND SAID THIS

I MADE FOR YOU

JUST FOR YOU

SO YOU WOULD SMILE

AGAIN

SHE SAID SIT MY DEAR

SIT WITH ME

AND I DID

SHE WAS INFRONT

ACROSS FROM ME

I WATCHED

HER ARMS MOVE

I WATCHED HER FACE

I THEN SAW

THE MINDS EYE

FLOATING IN THE DISTANCE

I SAW HER

PLAYING AND THE MUSIC

FLOWED IN MY HEART

ONCE AGAIN

THE BLISS

SURROUNDED ME

AS I WATCHED

AND SMILED

MY FACE GLOWED

AND MY HANDS

SOARED IN MOVEMENTS

I COULDN'T STOP

THEM IF I WANTED TO

I SAW THEN DANCERS

FLOW IN AND OUT

BETWEEN US

I SAW GANASH

SIT TO HER LEFT

AND OPEN CUSHION

ON THE RIGHT

I SAW BRAHMA

THE THREE FACES

FLOWED

THEN OUT OF THE

HEADS CAME

THE KALI

AND KALI DANCED

ON THEIR HEADS

AS SHE DANCED

I WATCHED

THEN SHE CAME

BACK IN FRONT OF ME

ALL HER ARMS

OUT AND MOVING

AS A RED FLAME

FORMED

THEN SHE SAT BACK

DOWN

AND SAID COME TO ME

MY DEAR

COME TO ME

NOW

I HAVE SOMETHING

TO SHARE WITH YOU

AS YOU HAVE

SHARED WITH ME

I WALKED UP

TO THE STEPS

TO THE AREA

SHE WAS

I SAW GANASH SMILING

AT ME

THEN IN A WOMAN

CAME AND HANDED

HER A CUP FULL

OF SOMETHING

SHE TOOK IT

AND HANDED IT OUT

TO ME SAYING

DRINK WITH ME

DRINK WITH ME NOW

I HESITATED

BUT THEN AS I LOOKED

INTO THE BOWL

IT WAS CLEAR

LIKE WATER

SO I DRANK IT DOWN

SHE THEN TOOK

THE BOWL CUP

AND DRANK AFTER ME

SHE SMILED

AND SAID NOW SIT

NEXT TO ME

SIT NEXT TO ME

MY DEAR

I WENT UP TO THE

RED AND BLUE

CUSHION

AND SAW IT HAD

SILVER AND GOLD

TRIM

AND TASSELS

I SAT DOWN

AND SHE BEGAN

TO SING

AND AS SHE SANG

SHE SAID LOOK

AND I LOOKED OUT

AND DANCING IN AND OUT

OF THE SCENE

WAS THE GALAXY

AND PEOPLE

FLOWING IN AND OUT

DANCING AROUND

AND SHE SAID

LAY YOUR HEAD DOWN

I DID SO

NOT A WORD SPOKEN

JUST LISTENING

SHE THEN BEGAN

TO BRUSH MY HAIR

AND I FELT IT ON MY

HEAD

I FELT THE BRUSH

OF HER ON MY SKIN

AS SHE TOUCHED

MY FACE

AND I TURNED

AND LOOKED UP

AT HER

SHE SMILED BACK

DOWN TO ME

AND SAID

DON'T STAY AWAY

FOR SO LONG

AGAIN

A TEAR FELL

FROM HER FACE

THEN AS THE

TEAR HIT MY

FACE

I OPENED MY EYES

AND I WAS AGAIN

BACK IN MY CHAIR

LISTENING

TO THE CHANTING

AND IN THE DISTANCE

WHEN I RE CLOSED MY EYES

THE EYE WAS THERE

FAR FAR AWAY

GLOWING WHITE

AND MY CAT

WAS BELOW ME

RUBBING UP

ON MY HANDS

AS I OPENED MY EYES

AGAIN I REALIZED

I HAD NO MORE PAIN

AND I FELT BETTER

I SMILED

AND SAID I WILL BE BACK

AND IN THE DISTANCE

THE VOICE I HAD

GROWN ACCUSTOMED

TO WAS DISAPPEARING

AND I SOON

COULD NOT HEAR

HER ANYMORE

NOR THE SCREAMS

OR THE YELLING

ONLY SILENCE

AND PEACE

FILLED MY HEART

I AM ME AGAIN
