2/15 – 4. Switch it on

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

Stepping up to voice

My choice

To let it go

The flow

Is beyond control

So when you fall

Roll

Then rise

Open your eyes

See the fresh horizon

Great eastern sun risin’

Resplendent

Transcendent

Heaven sent

An extension

To the new dimension

The fourth perspective

Reflective

Of the so far unseen

Subtle being

The place from which Gandalf and Arthur ride

Where secret valleys hide

Where Isaiah spoke messiah

The second coming is the inner fire

Walkin’ the wire

To paradise lost in the frost

It’s the time of the great turning

Great burning

Great thaw I am sure

The final unmasking

Now I’m askin’:

What if it’s been there all along?

And we just never switched it on?

Shangri La is not far

Shambhala, Camelot glory

The Atlantis story

Dante’s peak of mount purgatory

The new birth of heaven here on earth

The Ultimate wave to surf

The place of shift

Where we all uplift

Into the fourth dimension

Paradise is not hidden in the ice

It’s here

Beyond the fear

The next tier

The fog begins to clear

To reveal

A divine seal

As we fall,

Roll and rise waking up to the higher call

Open our eyes to the stars

Walk through the mirage

Onto solid ground

Paradise found.

What if it’s been there all along?

And we just never switched it on?

Paradise found

Heroes abound

Sensing the future with sonar sound

Cutting the path

Being the pavers

Removing the layers

Of deception

Perception

Peeling back reality

To the feelin’ inside of me

Of future generations calling us on

The wind in the sails of a ship in a storm

Life momentum

Never endin’

Waves from behind

Echoes in mind

Nagging unease

This itchin’ ain’t fleas

It’s the future coming in on the breeze.

What if it’s been there all along?

And we just never switched it on

The field beyond right and wrong

That’s where we belong

That’s where we been all along

I ain’t no car salesman

This ain’t no con

It’s a revelation

In every nation

On every station

Since creation

Just switch it on
