ADRIFT


Meditation.
A voyage of discovery
on an internal sea of unknown limits
to a destination
yet to be revealed.

Look at that guy laying there
apparently asleep.
He seems so much at peace.
He obviously doesn't know.

Thoughts ricochet through my mind,
their images flash in my vision.
I remember being there when this happened
ten thousand years ago.
Or was it last week?

Calmly, I watch myself being slaughtered
by invaders carrying blades
of shiny metal, no,
it is by a beast of the forest.

I must get back now.
The years and experiences stream past.
He slumbers so peacefully in his bed,
we must get up, so I can go to work.
