The Dream

I see the shore through the window
The sky the sea
It could be dusk, but it’s dawn
The receding tide a context clue

A man lifts empty lobster cages made of bamboo
A boy picks up and drops crabs — one, then two
Pebbles and shells shimmer as waves return to the sea
None else is there with me

Gifts from the Dream

The push the pull the rhythm of it all

The ocean is my mother
Where the primordial ancestor was born
The push the pull the rhythm of it all

My dreams gestate under the water
Among whales and microscopic matter
The push the pull the rhythm of it all

Soft sand settles on the semblance of bottoms
Still there are deep crevasses
The push the pull the rhythm of it all

All this matter all this form
Continually transforming
It’s not a secret
It’s there to see
The push the pull the harmony

The push the pull the rhythm of it all

What’s revealed by the receding sea
Luminescent waters tease
Gifts gleam
I enter the dream to receive
Meanings to make what do I see

The push the pull the rhythm of it all

The reflection of water on all that I grasp
No separation between this and that
The edge is where we connect

The shore the skin the lip the top
The bottom the horizon the pulsing aura
The push the pull the rhythm of it all

The push the pull the rhythm of it all


Resources for working this dream include being with the ocean, and the IChing, particularly Hexagram 2 — the yielding/receptive/nature. Hexagram 2 came up repeatedly for a while in my daily readings.
