Watershed moments…

“We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human.”
― Charles Eisenstein


My dreams dissolved
into thin air,
I groped the heaviness
of watchful prayers…
in the darkness
I bolted from sleep
to shed the misery
of a shadowy creep…

I’d felt the drone
of human dismay,
the press release with nothing good to say,
conditioned by my worldly flesh
in disturbed scenarios
I’d become enmeshed…

I searched the horizon for hosts of light
to rescue me on this frightened night

Against the blackness
of bejeweled skies
I felt the gravity of human sighs,
I saw the firmament
abounding with life
a million orbs
who conceived delight…

in narratives of the cold night air,
I sensed impressions of beings who care…

I stroked the dog,
drank my tea,
I wondered what had become of me?

Then I descended
into a sleepy haze,
having gained resemblance of inward praise…

the recognition
that I had been caught
in the dull ache
of toxic thoughts…

swamped by the murkiness of an ominous threat
these watershed moments
I never forget….


I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...

      1. My heart goes out to them and all those immigrant workers across the world, so far from home with so little and some at home but starving, my heart really aches for them.
