uncommon sense


It is an uncommon sense

but everyone has it; for some 

it sleeps beneath 

the surface of consciousness 

dormant and waiting

to awaken; others aware

have yet to develop it. 

For some it has become routine,

but everyone has it.


It makes education irrelevant 

and information unnecessary;

it allows one to see

the end of the matter

immediately without

need of understanding

the how or the why.

It leaves one knowing only

that this is the way it is.


It is an uncommon sense

that allows one’s heart 

to identify the primary cause

of any effect measured

by the eyes.


It is an uncommon sense

and with it come glimpses 

of the other world–where

locality is relative to awareness. 

Uncommon sense permits sight 

of things intended to be hidden:

motivations and stories

well or horribly written;

indeed, all things concealed

are revealed to one with this

uncommon sense.


Children have it 

perfectly developed,

before we force them to forget

this gift of discernment;

before we teach them 

to pretend its presence

is imaginary and only things 

we can see with our eyes

are real.


It is an uncommon sense

typical to animals, whose

senses are multiplied 

by factors of purpose; sometimes,

I feel they are more attuned

than us.


It is an uncommon sense, 

an awareness rising

in each and every mind, 

collectively forming

a new breed of travelers 

on the frontier of Spirit,

and as the critical mass 

draws nearer and nearer 

to outnumbering those

unaware, the world

in one day will just 

up and decide to change

itself.

Twitter brings poet to light 10/05/09



Through my terrific Twitter network tonight, I learned ofhttp://www.twitter.com/icpchad. Someone sent me an amazing preview for the book Uncommon Sense: http://tinyurl.com/yec2dmg So unique, spiritual and lyrical. A must to check out! I had to find out who the author was and, after a couple of tweets, found out and contacted him to say how amazing the preview was and that I was ordering copies, which I did! I was so inspired, I attempted my shot at poetry.... haven't done that in ages!! Thank you @icpchad for providing the inspiration.

Perfection

in synchronized timing unbeknownst
to me until hindsight
always 20/20
at the end of the mile that 
always is in progress
the eternal
journey 
of this endless moment
as blissful as 
we make it
now
in this moment we continue 
to share until 
words stop
yet linger on a hint
of a wisp 
of the forever we share
together
it and
we
the one of the
I
in the wholeness
of
perfection.
