What If Meaning Shakes You loose
audio version mp3

      That sprinkle of twinkling dots above you is your mother,
      A living, breathing chasm that delivered you from darkness.
      Its meaning ancient, the guideposts among the stars
      may seem  irrelevant, until you find your own personal
      connection waiting there. You gotta wonder.
      Can you recreate yourself?

What If Meaning Shakes You loose and the only skill
You end up having is the power to recreate yourself?

Itís just a story that you want to edit, because people have
been writing about you for thousands of years, all about you.
Shame you didnít read any of it, didnít give laughter all the
proof it needed to convince you that you were connected
to the heavens all along, a creation of sights and symbols,
journeys and discoveries, tales of vast experience and
culture to be revealed even to the vaguely interested,
a veg like me.

I love when something that was always known proves to be
useful, just needed a little shove, a point of departure that
makes you reinvent a powerful vision from the older one.
Art is a lens to focus your mindís eye and free you from ego,
always lying around in a form that gives rise to new invention.
What If meaning shakes you loose and swirling dimensions
you end up exploring give you the power to recreate
and restore lost worlds?
