It woke me up from sleeping;
Body shaking and mind keeping
Track of pulses beating wild.
Then I realized the shaking
And wild dance of life was taking
Place only on the inside.
Each cell within me screaming
To stop this tumultuous dreaming
And sleep, unmindful, again.
But all around me's teaming
With constant energy streaming
From that one creative source.
The source was the Chaos when
The Cosmos started swirling and
Whirling with that first wild dance
All we cannot know; yet need.
Ironic hunger and feed
For us: in, around, and through.
I sat straight up in the night:
Awed, informed, enthused, a fright,
That the source and I were one.
Fifteen billion years stand stout;
Breathe deep with me, in and out;
Conspiring with each atom
Radical Ecstasy beat
In me! Humble me now and treat
me to communion with all.
Vibrate like the plants and flowers,
Oblivious to years and hours.
Is, and was, and always will be.
Like rocks and trees vibrating,
And rapidly titillating
Each other in this Cosmic Dance.
Resonate like each human,
mammal, fish, bird and insect; and
Scream in the vast stillness of space.
Speak thoughts to me like Shakespeare;
Music as to Beethoven's ear,
Beat wild and freely now with me.
My order, form, and beauty,
Fear, hope, passion, love, and duty,
Chaos, death, and pestilence.
My water, fire, air, and earth,
Like planet's old or newly birthed.
What is at all, Be all in me.
Radical Ecstasy, beat
In me and let me feel the seat
Of life and death. One with you!
