SINGING WITH THE UNIVERSE (or a talk with my Self)

I hear myself sing in my thoughts
And I wonder, how long have I been singing –
I wonder, how long have I been listening?

I see myself on a journey
And I wonder, why have I not noticed
I am moving outside this world
Into the stars and beyond.

I reflect, I do not know how long
I’ve been standing here waiting to see myself
In the divine glow contemplating the light
That has set me afire and asked me
To listen to the universe beyond the stars.

Then I sat down and heard
I watched myself move
And lit up from inside my heart
To cast a shadow on the known universe
So that I may know where I have been
So that I can see where I haven’t traveled.

The small universe opened to reveal its twin
Then I sank down to the size of a grain of sand,
Twinkled in the sky to light the path I was soon to travel.

I have made these changes that I asked of myself
And now I must open a new universe
So that I may walk within to discover
Its mysteries without boundaries.

I will see you later Michael,
Let’s not forget where we came from
To explore and discover that there is more to come.
Let’s not be dissuaded from seeing
This is a gift that never dies.
