My Little Heaven

I wonder...
If I could live poetically...
For one day only..
Just 24 hours..
What would I do?..

Didn't take much thought actually...

I would become neurologically altered so that
My speech will falter bringing me that
Much closer to my beautiful daughter...

In her world of autism....

Where I would give up the norm and
Embrace a new form of talking...walking with her
As she TAKES me by the hand helping me to
Innerstand the more grand plans beyond this land
Let her do the teaching
And I'll do the seeking
The reaching out
Stripped of my intellectual clout as
My views begin to crumble making me humble
As I trip and stumble over new learning curves
Laughing at myself as I see I'm getting on her nerves....
So I follow along in her path as she 'speaks' to me in
The language of math...I just love the way she laughs as she
Break down equations and abbreviations with ease funny
How I 'see' now My brain no longer on freeze....
And it was simple child's play...something she would do all day...
I feel myself start to sway...
You ok daddy?...she asks
Yes baby...I reply
Be steady...We haven't got much time
And there's more for me to show you...

Now she shows me the artistry of her INNER verse
As we disperse with gravity and skip upon rainbows
Mental mosaics would then simultaneously begin to glow as
Scribes from far away tribes unroll before us in scrolls of...
Certainly impossible?!!!
Daddy get that KNOT out of your brain
Don't strain...remain calm....
Feel the FORCE seeping through my palm.....
My senses relax as cerebral fences retract
She looks me over then speaks with a certain tact...
Daddy...I live in a nexus
Between space and time...which is marked by
Rhythms and paradigms, heartbeats and SUN rises
....But your kind is too blind
Bonded and obsessed with the physical...
Suppressing mystical FREEquencies....
Which is the same as science but your race
Frequently courts too much violence....
Daddy I want to help you
But after today you gotta tune into
Your higher sense okay?........
So it's a new day now
It's an old ME
With a new EYE
For EYE look at the ESSENCE of me
And old words take on new meanings
For I have always from birth
Claimed her to be My little Heaven.....
And now she has given me
The TRUTH to carry such words....
If I could LIVE this poetically...
For one day only
I'd do it in a heartbeat...
