Lotus LandTue, August 22, 2006 - 12:34 PM
I barely feel a part of this waking reality. Time passes over me like an old sweet song. My body moves to keep the beat, melting inside the rhythm of one foot placed beside the other, never forward, never back, present inside this title track. But I want more she screams into the night; stars a mystery, air a mystery, the moon a mystery, this silence that surrounds....a sleeping mystery. Uncover the real truth, she cries, if this truth I hold quaking in the palms of my hands is nothing more than honesty. This weight I bare is not simply my own. It is not my own. It is mine and my sisters to share. And its face will chase you to wake against the whim of this lucid dream. But every time I do, I am still here, still breathing, still beating, still beginning again and again and again and again. Time change. Please. I barely feel a part of this waking reality, my afterlife tied to the daughter I never had, her voice reminding me of the choice I made to stay. To fight. My beforelife tied to the chains of Karma and its inevitable return. But this lesson, this lesson I will learn. This crystal will turn. This Lotus will become a land.
