All That I ...

All That I ...
                  Authored by Chuck Keys

Looking to and fro    side to side    it wasnt in sight    it had no scent   
it had no dimensions    nor phsyicality    nor identity
yet    just for a brief second    I felt its cool breeze pass by
it contrasted sharply from the bright    hot    silent    lazy    late    afternoon     sun   
the sweat on my brow made my skin tingle    just ever so slight   
                                                             just a brief tiny muscle twitch or 2
there was no warning     no hint of what was coming    or going    only a wee afterthought.
Sssshhh    nothing is moving    not even a fly    neither ant   nor gnat
waiting patiently for a movement    something must move    but when
why was there so much blankness    yet existence
sssshhh    maybe    just maybe    it will come back
is it time    must it be now    aaaahhhaaa    eureka   I remember    I think I know
it was my time to thank God again for all that I ...

    Very brilliant for a minute their, i thought you where not feeling the masses of life. Losing all the energy to the constant speed accelerating the change straight ahead. Glad you got to meet who you you really are in the presence of God. Lovely poem, enjoyed the insights of the view of your dimension having no walls... full of air, and the stare ahead. Glad to read this one, have a wonderful day,..p.d.
