BEHIND THE DOOR


the door remains closed
hiding some unknown consciousness
of unconventional wisdom
beneath the sea of infinite vibrations
within the eternal ecstasies of the imagination
controlled by the mystic secrets of the mind
in touch with the perception of the essential nature
of something old or nothing new
surrounded by the mistakes of reality
where the door of perception remains unpasteurized
without filters or conditions
remaining true to the pure universe
of mescaline and whole wheat bread
where naked mummies dance with Tibetan monks
hallucinating to the embodied spirits of lonely nuns
who cry out in hope and forgiveness
in harmony
behind the door

Let's see...unknown consciousness, ecstasies, mystic secrets, mescaline, hallucinating...I think the only thing you're missing here, in this spiritual reach for Eastern wisdom is the Brazilian penchant for ayahuasca. Almost had a flashback, but I'm ok now. =)

I especially liked the last nine lines of this poem...the mummies with the monks with the nuns. Funny where a door might lead: I keep thinking I was born in the wrong decade. Nicely done.

Wow Wayne this totally knocked me on my arse!
Not a word I normally use but the yankee version sounds crass!
Fantabulous! Thanks for a great prompt!
Cheers

This is such a fantastic image:

where naked mummies dance with Tibetan monks
hallucinating to the embodied spirits of lonely nuns

Hawks are one win away... keeping my fingers crossed.

I like your allusion to the "door of perception", which takes us to The Doors and to William Blake. Well done.

I agree with the others who observed that the images in those last two lines are fantastic. So much happening behind the door..so close and yet untouchable.
