Body Awareness

by Manas Moksha

Part I. Ground

In the Earth
a Ground
minerals rich and layered
block by block
our giants take root
and fold into life

teeming with micro beings
beings in movement
doings without a moment to grasp onto

recirculating the essence of time decomposing
nematodes, protozoans, rotifers, and fungi
arise and pass as cesium atoms dissolve
into the ground of Berric lake

Awareness begins here
creating heat
driving vibration of space
the dark void of forgotten details trail like cosmic dust
one ripple then 4 leave a wake of slow synchrony each second

the fabric of ground unravel
twisting up the spine of a vertebrate
weaving a meandering network of qi
finally finding the tethered breath
nourishing expansion filtered through the still flame
it appears
out of emptiness

the ground beneath our feet
the nest for the present moment
the layers that support the contrasts
the it and not that
the "I" and not "other"

ten times faster - the strings of space
reverb and feedback
dance in pixels of friction
collapsing on body and mind
twisting through fascia
resonating into the ether
reflecting back upon each point of contact
in sensation
in perception
in experience

awareness creates light from heat
Ground and Body are one
Feeling in as if each sensation were rooted in the soil beneath our feet

Science is not the new art
because it always was--
we knew this already because of the language,
the words--artfully exercised
like Newton's Fire Sermon.
