poetry from another dimension

church bells, revised

The ‘berry rings
church bells
5:00 am

alarm intact
from days
deep and resonant with practice

managing the world
by standing on my head

in those days
this alarm said
/Wake up and practice/

Now
it says
/Wake up/

the ultimate digital zen master
inviting not an escape from life

instead inviting one
to live

not deep and dreamy
filled with unconsummated desires
and transcendental aspirations

instead, life
tasting of dishes
heaped on the table
directly
in front
of you

Some liking
Some not liking
All part of the feast of living

church bells on christmas
ring with joy
to celebrate the birth of a love
so huge
for thousands of years
it’s been remembered
sometimes…..well
sometimes, well, like any other gossip
the story’s all wrong
the ‘berry rings church bells
and i remember instead
instead to celebrate
that loving presence
living right now

In the hearts and minds
of each one of us.
It’s all right here

wake up the alarm says
your life is waiting
