Heart and mind and body and soul


Are, combined, the universe


Of awareness.


 


Awareness, evidentially, is like


An ocean


Of unplumbed depths,


Uncharted terrain


Unmapped shores


Ever changing, dissolving, evolving.


 


Never stagnant


Ever active


Even when quiet


A breath of death.


 


Nor does it perceive authority.


It merely is


And becomes


And heaves


And sighs


And leaps.


 


It sobs against indifferent rocks


Rages beneath darkened, lowering skies


Glistens mirrors of itself


Against the sun.


 


It floats the light of stars


Upon its bosom,


Nurtures the flesh


Of its own fertility


In primordial amniotic womb


And simultaneous tomb.


Yields to the superfluity


Of whatever overpowers


Its own terms.


 


It frolics in shoals of austere shores,


Is heavy, overburdened


With its own entrapped mass


In caverns of futile, pulsing


Fluidly swamping


The great deaf weight of itself.


In the bottoms of ultimacy,


Washing every atom of itself -


In the self-manufactured plasma of change


In the flow of and in and through itself


In its own totality.


It is warm and hot and cool and cold


And here and there


At once.


It swims in itself -


Erratically, ecstatically


In golden light.


 


In silver crest


In translucent wave


Upon wave


In thick, morbid mass


In sparkling ever essence


In pink blue


And aquamarine hue.


 


It is all and everything


And nothing definable,


Merely is and becomes


Evolves and evaporates


To glance the stars


To waft through


Eternal sameness


And otherness -


 


It is music of being and becoming


And the dirge of its decay


Of its own renewal


Doomed to continue rebirth


Of the imperative of revitalizing death.


 


Its sight is the universe


Of beauty in movement and caress


Of all it glides


Through,


In,


Beneath


Over


Among.


 


Its sound is the pulse


Of infinite molecular sensitivity


And fluid essence


Of every particular


Of ever microcosm


Within the microcosm


Of total intuitive acknowledgment.


 


It is the savor


Of all biology and psychic phenomena


That swim its currents of saline flavor


In mounds


Of billowing, wallowing heaves


Cresting in waves of effervescent,


Of rampant random circumstance.


 


All of itself swells


And swamps


And swills


And sieves


And sweeps satin sand bottoms -


Sobs against shoulders of obstruction


Celebrates in bubbly foam -


Throws tantrums of frustration


Against promontories of restraint -


And cliffs of recalcitrant lenience


Of dominion


Along shores of discovery.


 


Ever restless


Ever reaching


Ever fluid


Ever groundless


 


It is mother of species


Spawned of itself -


Launched in


And upon itself


To acknowledge


To play


Its mimic role,


To weave biological remnant


Unto generations of reflect self.


 


Downtime


To utter dissemination


And then to vaporize


And mingle


With other essence -


To begin anew the pattern


Of defiant obedience


To unobliged authority.


 


Awareness is oceanic self.
