Down the rabbit hole

Won’t you follow me today?

The ancient eavesdropper

Down the rabbit hole

Let your mind just slip away,
before the steps collapse.
Rearrange your perspective β€”
tilt it to the sideways, downhill
slide of a mountain roaming
up and down.

Never let tired eyes relax because
they are young, fresh from sleep,
sending spasms of pain that react,
even cry at the beauty that’s been seen β€”
what you thought was only possible in dreams.

Change your vision β€”
keep your heart beating with the noise
you heard in the forest, startling you,
tripping over twigs, stumbling over
white skeletons that curve around your legs.

The only path we want to take is easy.
What I think we need is unlimited symmetry
stretching over the mountainous expanses
of the mind, plunging into the body
and returning inverted, like the spirit
we knew we always had and the inescapable
life we broke through to find.

  1. My grandfather was a magician and the most impressive trick was the rabbit out of the hat. This reminds me of the world the rabbit is from or more so how we being the rabbit broke through the hole into the magic world we live in. Thank-you.

      • Thank-you for your insights. I do not look at the sky quit the same after viewing your love for it through your images and words. I thought of you yesterday as I glimpsed the sky above our Cemetery walk from the past, and other walks through nature. It’s a nice reminder that people exist with a passion and essence for nature when in some it has been forgotten. Michael J Cahill reminded me to show my appreciation πŸ™‚
        Have a great day,
        Tara
