We each have paid our fare
in advance, to be awakened
passengers on this life starship.
The choice is to remain in hibernation,
fast asleep to the stars speeding
all around us, or to let go of tethered
consciousness and find ourselves
falling into, embracing the
Crab Nebula as she time warps
who we are into living the stellar
life of a fully conscious human.
The question is who among you
would still cling to being fast asleep,
witnessing the world only in muted
by for eternity, one after the other?
Or be awakened to the constant
greening and birthing moment
by moment awareness, of all
that glitters golden surrounding you?
Is there really a choice? Is there?
