A Mystic Journey
#10
Sorry. I just got Majestic Sun's comment about bullet points and not to use them. Actually, originally they were dashes, but when it was pasted here they turned into bullet points. But I meant to imitate Emily Dickinson. I also felt that I needed to adhere to the principle "Less is more", so I pared it down a bit more. Here it is below again, if you care to read it again. My aim is to present sexuality as a pure spiritual experience. So anything that might help the poem seem more "pure" towards that end would be helpful. Does that make sense?


I awake to a mystery,
walking along a majestic sea of crystal glass
a dolphin leaping out of the blue
a white glove
beckons me,
turns me into a speckled wide-eyed wanderer
a grand spiral staircase coming forth
Heaven-sent
the hand points and turns as if a clock
“Ascend,” it says.
I yield and obey.
It is nudging me,
irritating me.

Where am I going?
The steps bleed together
My legs grow tired.
I don’t want to climb anymore.
I peer to my side.
What if I jumped?

I am nearly faint of heart,
gasping.
one final step and I'm out of breath.


- A doorway
I collapse against the wood
breathing
instinctively, my hand wanders the keyhole

- A peek inside reveals an entire universe.

I look to my friend, but there is no response.
my heart is beating in my chest wildly
observing, I wonder?
I place my wet, sweaty fingers into the hole,
fingering for a moment.
yes. there it is. a latch.
I grab the trigger.
My moist, hot hand now dripping
and with a click, a release,
the door is ajar now, revealing glowing light
Entering, the glove is removed
Revealed as a dove
She flies away, leaving a swirl of colors behind her
She says, "I am spirit and I am breath of your flesh.
I give you permission to dwell in both universes now.”

I fall down as I see colors I've never seen before
A masterpiece of pink opening up like a woman's bosom
My own chest collapses
I am aching with love
tears flowing
Swirls of purple effervescence all about
Spiraling, dancing around me
I have become Snow White,
graced by the song of blue birds
perching on my shoulder,
a brown-grey rabbit at my feet,
a rooster cock-a-doodling.
I welcome each strange creature,
seeing bursts of yellowish light
firecrackers filling me with a golden glow
I am red with the color of love.
Am I dead?
Nevermind. I am at peace now. It is complete.
