We no longer see as our eyes
were created to see. Once,
there were saber tooth tigers
and woolly mammoths to either run
from or hunt for our very survival.
Now, seeing has become beyond
believing as our inner eyes rise
to rule our emotions. Empowered
by new sight, our reptilian reaction
to stimuli has shifted to a measured
response. Perception is no longer
defined by outer objects as if our eyes
now have breath. For breath, sight,
touch, taste and being have merged
into an experiential sea of snaps of
color leaving us to gaze in wonder,
like infants seeing everything
for the first time.
As an Ecstatic Poet, my aim is to awaken in you, the part of you that knows the truth of your being, the beauty of your soul.
