Waking up from waking up

I wrote this wacky poem last year but never posted it. It dates from the time
when conspiracy theorists were going on about waking up. The haiku was written some years – it came from an experience of waking up (this time literally – from a night’s sleep) and hearing a voice in my head saying ‘on a quantum level everything is energy’.

Waking up from waking up
I discover there is no fixed point
to hold onto and say
hey yeah – this is it,
I am finally enlightened,
I am fully awake now for sure.
Instead, or so it seems to me,
it’s all evolving consciousness.
Even, so they say, the cosmos
itself is expanding/evolving.

So waking up from waking up
seeing where I was before –
that place I thought was so awake
is just another pitstop on the way
and there’s always somewhere higher,
somewhere clearer
somewhere lighter
to be.

Also – just letting you all know I’m taking a blogging break to catch up with some other work.
I’ll be back when I’ve caught up with stuff.

  1. The joy of waking comes in the knowledge of another day will soon unfold with new and fresh articulations of the wonder of being. If I felt I had arrived there would be nothing left to write. Enjoy the break and come back with fresh stuff.

    1. Hi Sherry, I’m taking a break to finish my novel. It seems to be demanding totally immersion at this point. No promises as to how long it will take but the end’s in sight ๐Ÿ™‚
