Out on the fringes
Beyond speculation
Beyond deep cobalt blue
Bottoming out
Rising to infinity
To sunless east, west
Where long since had appeared
The golden, hazy light
This is where my spirit’s fancy has strayed
Expecting blackness,
Many shades beyond night
I am surprised
For there is music
Music of unimaginable depth and sweetness
And there are colors
This circular rainbow of known and unknown colors
And there is transcendent peace
The soul seeming to float
There is love
And infinite truth

    Rereading Abs I and II this morning as I seek peace with the new day. Your words travel my thoughts through forever and gently deposit them again on the threshold of hope. Thanks for the journey, John

    Daver, the new one, will you also be posting it here? You've been more on the go than I. In fact, I feel like I'm in a state of inertia. Does give me time to poke around in here though. Not as much as I should. We don't hear much about Sandy any more, but Ruben posted an update on his blog. :( No more wind, but lots of crud in its wake. Keep well,Love, Mikki

    Really special Dave, has a surreal thread that winds through so many wonderful descriptions of places you take me. I read the first part too and enjoyed every bit of it! Love, Lizzie

    Oh this is like a meditative, contemplative state, Daver. Makes me think of sounds that can be heard there, that can't be replicated. Do you think Daver, that this can bring us into another dimension? Still to find "love And infinite truth" would make it a welcoming state.:) Love, Mikki :)
