Recognition

Deep, dark colors. Recognition.
Black and gray within the misty light.
Amniocentesis of the light that lives
within each life and death.
Is it healthy? Is it wise?
What color lingers in its eyes?
Blood flowing through its tiny veins.
It doesn't seem to use its brain.
But look! A life beginning - oh perfection!

Deep, dark colors. Recognition.
Black and gray within the misty light.
Blood flowing from a great incision.
Heart pumping in an other human hand.
What deep demand would bring it all to this?
Seeking for the feel of healing balm.
Anesthetized into a feel of calm.
While deep inside, some part of you is dying.

Deep, dark colors. Recognition.
The leaves are turning endlessly around.
Autumn bright into a deeper brown.
The sun descends. It cannot face the clouds.
Expression found in howling out loud.
Deeper, higher, wider still.
Deep, dark colors. Ego still.

Consciousness was never, ever only of the mind.
Contrasts come to help us see anew.
Feel the colors now cascading
deeply and completely through your soul...
