              something is going down

and I know what it is

                  but I cannot explain it


at least that’s what I repeat over and over

   while I’m dreaming


  actually, I don’t know what it is

        but I’ve brainwashed myself into thinking

  I know it


            all that mystery being dampened

by sweaty beads of dogma

               falling from chests of tenacious thinkers




 in a wild romantic dance of pain and power


                                        I waltz

sideways with a shadow

   so there are no incursions


 moving on further into the universal scheme

                                tending to the momentum

                  we live and die for


               for those vast portals of data

                                         within everyone’s grasp

                           yet so elusive to our touch


  and of course, there’s so much energy

within our own palms and knuckles and feisty structures

                we easily fashion our own god-like thoughts


                             I’ll be looking forward to its arrival

 even as this lifetime of gloom and division

           attempts to nudge out

       those wonderful moments of truth and compassion


          tearing away

                        at our memories and meanderings


     where visions of death

         resize our prospects and perspectives


                 and survival compels us  to live again

to evaluate

 whether to die once more

   hopefully in a more civil manner


                    there are angels and devils

                expressing chaos and love

   through the same origin of conception


                                  where  beauty and knowledge

play within the vilest games of creative know how

                              and are intrinsically dizzy


                  something, is definitely going down

we all sense it

we can taste it


           our fear is uplifting us

          our fury giving in to itself


        I’m growing

 knowing something very unusual is going down


                 and you know what?


 I love the mystery of it all

Life is lived by the masses in varying ways and who can say which way is right or wrong. Some things we have no control of and there is little that can be done to stop the cataclismic affects of what is happening. All we can do is to live each day the best we can...M

I love the wide open space you create for our minds to share this mountain-top experience and bird's-eye view with you, Amigo, seen as with the sagacity of the Eagle. All the world's a stage beneath such a penetrating, perspicacious gaze, and I like the sense of awe, foreboding and yet also almost eager excitement which you conjure on this observational journey through. You set up worlds within worlds as seen from both the material and spiritual perspectives. And, as always, your expression and images are unique and intriguing which adds to the mystery you allude to. Walzing sideways into the universal dream and scheme is a wonderful picture of successful navigation away from any annihilating incursions, and:

there are angels and devils

expressing chaos and love

through the same origin of conception

are wonderful lines encapsulating the enigma of life as experienced on this earth in human form. There's a whole lotta shakin goin on in this write, Kartero, and yes, we all feel its goose-bumpy vibe. Fabulous flow to this well-developed work. xx

jude, the realities of human existence are played out on an uneven field - emotions overwhelm our senses with contradictory information until the heart and soul of us are overwhelmed and we become disillusioned - hope and joy are trampled by the deeds of those seeking to control our every emotion and deed - when at last we seek to view beyond the simplistic nature of those ploys we can clearly see the journey's absolute beauty - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

Jeez oh man! this is astonishing! What a magnificent showing of gems of observances of the present. Most glinting gems for me: "I waltz/sideways with a shadow/so there are no incursions" "...the momentum/ we live and die for" "there are angels and devils/expressing chaos and love/through the same origin of conception" ----- The last six lines carry strength beyond words. This is great. ~~ Diana

While this was going down, I was busy trying to catch up. So glad I caught up to this one. It is full of all kinds of mystery and intrigue. I'm about to write my story, 2012, where things will be going down until the end of the year to the end of the Mayan calendar. Hang on!

Wow *jude* not much restful sleeping

I hope when whatever it is that's going down gets there, it is everything that you can anticipate. Sometimes the journey is far more interesting than the destination.

In waking thoughts, subconscious musings, and subjective dreams we often contemplate what we see, feel, hear going around in our world. We remember past experiences, add on present mood, subtract the realilistic...and often ignore the what will be. Lots of food for thought in your poem Jude.

Hey Jude,
At first when I received the email of your posting, read the title, my thoughts were immediately in the gutter so to
One can think in a sensual way about this poem, however, I am sure there are many mysteries in our Universe that we all would love to figure out.
There is a lot of sh..t going down...Always has and always will. The key to understanding when to pay attention or not is trusting in your gut feelings...Your sacral chakra will guide you.. Trust in what you feel and go with your first instincts. Remember take no prisoners...forge forward and let the Universe be your guide...

Love this poem, it says a lot about where your mind is at this moment in time...Someone is going down, and I would love to be on that receiving couldn't resist.... :)

Much peace, light and love,

I agree! Something is fast approaching. And everyone will breath and stumble in its miasma. its gone far beyond intellectualizing anymore. An excellent transparent portrayal, Robert, that you resolve ubiquitously in the last line. r

This is one of those churning dreams that leave me unsettled and unrested when I awake. There is too much to absorb while dreaming and layers of fog interrupt the clarity of thought creating a bit of distress from the unknowing. It is perplexing when you know the answer but you cannot call it up into your conscious state, instead, there is a strong sense of doubt as to whether or not you really do know. I am reeling, Jude, in a headspin from a drunken dream.
Take care,

i won't pretend to know exactly what you're feeling and sensing here,
Jude, but if it's anything close to what i feel and sense 'is coming'
(why is it always 'is coming'?)
then mine isn't optimistic; on the other hand by some law of averages
or other we can't go on as we are,
the dumb and pretence bubbles have to burst
and we may return to
thinking and real feeling and genuinely caring..that's my hope
at least

be well, poet
