Waking from a dream is like being homeless

Time moves so slowly
nothing makes sense
I fight for the little things
open doors are like fences

symbols and memories
patterns and games
not wanting to miss out
holding tightly to sand

putting on faces
and being a good dad
trying not to feel lonely
irritated or sad

surrounded by people who love me
my monologue is too long to hear

i notice things
patterns
behaviors
hard to ignore

i can slow it down
mow it down
it grows right back up
random stacks
books brought
random concrete blocks

my brain gets so crowded
with memories
that won't fade away

most people call it gifted
but to me
it's more like crazy

it feels homeless
without a place to call home
it feels homeless
not hopeless
unsettled bones

where i will land
here I stand
here I go
homeless

inside outside homeless
wandering moments homeless

from moments to photographs
homeless
but not alone

my heart feels all mushy
hazy of uncertainty
I told him I'm sorry
For the stupid things I sometimes say
it's not easy noticing who people are
on the inside

I'm cursed with this blessing
to be homeless wherever you are

waking and walking
through life

waking and walking
though fields of this life

waking and walking through dreams
and streams

I'm homeless
yet
intensely aware
wild and free

I think that's it.

It turned out a little dark. I'm not actually that dark. I don't know why it turned out that way. But

My itention was to explore the different counter intuitive aspects of feeling homeless, wild and free.

I'm not sure I accomplished it.

it is definitely a very very rough draft.

It's special... this won't be posted anywhere else.

Thank you for reading it.

Your Friend,

Daniel

I always feel more at home outside. Sometimes it's hard for me living in the city. But it's nice having a garden.

On my spiritual journey, I am feeling torn between polarities: returning home vs. making progress; cultivating vs. wildness; freedom vs. restraint.

The concept of the poem is that all three things: being Homeless, being Wild, and being Free can be both constructive or destructive for me. Being homeless seems intuitively negative, but it also contributes to being natural, wild, and free. Being wild can be a bad thing, but I generally think of it in the positive. Being free always feels good to me, but too much freedom encourages a lack of restraint. And again, for me, all three develop and influence the others.

I hope to continue to explore these feelings in this thread.


Thanks again,

Yes - I have experienced much of what you speak of. I always used to fight for freedom often as though it was more important than food and water

I think where the wild things are... Is some place of internal trust and alignment. I don't see being wild as chaotic and purposeless. I see it as alignment and refinement of one's soul and instincts.

To be wild and free to me personally means that I am in tune with my entire being and everything which surrounds it and not restricted to act in alignment with it all.
Strangely enough you mention the uncultivated soul... It has taken a lot of cultivation or maybe just dedication to my soul to create enough space to be wild and free...

Your Friend,

I often think that my work is quite dark as well... That is because of some perceptions I have of this forum where I fool myself into thinking its all meant to be love and light and rainbows lol... A lot of the journey ain't all rainbows and it's just as valid.
Personally I did not find your last piece of writing to be all that dark.
The most useful writing is often an organic process - it is good at times to just let it unfold as its meant to.

------------------------

scraping on the surface
with man made metal
honed sharpened unnecessary tools
i push away the earth

leaves sticks and wet garbage need to go

new sprouts are showing
new growth is coming
i want to see what's happening

last year i did a lot of planting
not much cultivating
not much composing
too much caregiving
not enough listening

i am listening now

scraping on the surface
pushing earth and moving soil
listening to my heart beat
and nothing else

What am I cultivating?
Who am I helping?
Where am I going?
Is this my home?

my eyelids open
lashes up
my roots go down
swirl around
slowing pushing against the ground

the ground pushes back in gratitude

This was beautiful...
