I Dream a World

Updated: Jan 30, 2021


I dream a world


where we awaken from the


dream


of the “me and mine”


life


where we awaken to our


divinity


that brilliant light


within


separation has no


foothold


here


and we transverse this


earth expressing


those light-filled attributes


(a light which has no opposite)


inherently emanating from our


true nature


that nature


transcendent yet


immanent




let us awaken from


the dream of separation


let us awaken


to the resplendence


of this earthly realm


filled with the miracle of


sentience and insentience


from gritty

nourishing

dirt and crop

quenched by waters deep

long and wide


to tundra expanse and

Saharan vistas


along with undulating oceanic movement

following lunar ebb and flow


and stars and galaxies above twinkling their light from


a span of millions and billions of years


away


the grandeur of it all


manifold tapestry of earth and


sky...




let us descend into the great heart


of being


the great heart of


being


that is one with all that


is


where kindness and respect


compassion and fierce courage


gorgeous rays shining out from unconditional love


empower


add dimension


gentling us into an increase of that light


(a light which has no opposite)


Let us awaken to all this



I dream a world


where we awaken

This is in response to an invitation to write a poem which starts with the line, “I dream a world,” on the part of a poetry contest held on MLK Day this year.
