|Interesting dreams for sure, Richard. Back when I did karate, we would do certain excercises blindfolded to sharpen the senses. It's amazing how one can grow to sense someone coming without a sound or scent. Your poem reminds me of those days and how inward-thinking moments like that become.
Congratulations on your new book! It sounds great. Love and hugs,

|Richard, if I could wake up like this, perhaps I might be able to
write a poem as intelligent and illuminating as this...or at least
such lines as these:
bone against flesh groaning to
pierce barriers beyond all limitations
Somehow, with those wonderful bracketed voice inserts, I imagine
that T.S. Eliot would have liked to have written this.
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
|Nuanced, multi-shaded and layered exploration
of the newly-"unexampled awakening"...
streams of (Joycean) consciousness running free
put punctuated at intervals by the 'other voice'
of reality and the ordinary doings that get us
through the morning and the rest of the day.
As Christine says, this is deeply inviting, and it's
a joy, Richard, to be welcomed into your world and your expression.
|Reviewed by Ronald Hull
|It sure helps to wake up from those! I think you've described the feeling very well.
|Reviewed by Christine Tsen
|Wow! What a deeply inviting poem, at once beautifully profound, masculine, sexy and subtle...as well as stark.
The third eye, beautiful!
I have it in mind to read your books soon Richard.

|i am going to hear a speaker this saturday in santa monica who talks a lot about this sort of thing. that's a really cool pic too, love to blow that up for the office. funny how the altered state of consciousness in the AM can lead to expansion of perception and awareness-- this morning i envisioned a world of nightmare and awoke to a world of nightmare.|

|Okay, I get this, I really do, though it took several reading & don't ask me to explain it...that I know I couldn't do...funny how I posted something about waking up as well...are you following me...? ;-)e|
