Dancing along an eternal chord

I dance
dance along the edge of understanding
trying to glimpse the eternal
within the temporary
expanding beyond my limitations

A tune
flows from an unseen musician
pouring into my crevices
permeating 
freeing 
bubbling 
gushing 
joining me with the millions
the other seekers
lonely unconnected dancers
searching for hidden answers

I hear
I feel
a ribboned connection
stronger than steel
within the eternal I kneel
knowing the temporary is not what's real

My heart dances
celebrates
skips along elevated beats
my inner self does not retreat
hungry for more
I let my soul eat
until I am sated 
satisfied
my vision intensified 
a temporal world
beyond the now
is
was
always
will be
magnified
the complicated simplified
child like wonder
amplified

I hear with the inner me
the part that was formed to be 
free
my eternal dancer
who feels beyond 
now
today
it's not about an answer
I exist
within the chord
of the great
the magnificent 
Maestro 


Dedicated to my friend Jane Morgan. This is my morning meditation.

    Sir, I raise my hat to you! What can I say? You touch my inner feelings, you draw me along like a bee to honey. Why do I taste a touch of EG here? You two have do have some things in common...maybe teacher-pupil effect? // paul
