1. The Dreamtime 9/10/2013

The Dreamtime

The aboriginal, surreal, arboreal time
Before we had words, life was about visions-
Dreaming and waking so close,
They were indivisible-
A single consciousness
When I was enwombed, my embryonic sight
Was the same as other creatures
It was then that I knew the dreamlife of dolphins
Like a monk's meditation, a mind that can't be written-

[Hata Bildir]
