Poetry – I Opened a Door

I Opened a Door

I opened a door

                And let the universe in.

I opened a mind

                And made dreams real.

I think

                And it exists.

I live

                In a storm of electricity.

Opher – 7.12.2021

The whole of our awareness of the universe is nothing more than the firings of neurones. Our senses feed back in electricity. Our brains create electric nets. None of it is real.

Connect us up to the right impulse and we could see, feel, taste, touch and smell anything, anything at all.

Perhaps that is where we are right now – in the laboratory of a mad scientist.

Reality is a dream

Maybe we create it?

A Little Bit More Beefheart – Electricity

A timeless bit of magic. We all need to have some electricity to shine on us and ease our dread.

Shout your truth peacefully!

Electricity

Singin through you to me
Thunder-bolts caught easily
Shouts the truth peacefully
E-LEC-TRI-CITY

High-voltage man kisses
night to bring the light
to those who need
t’ hide their shadow deed

Go into bright, find
the light and know
that friends don’t mind
just how you grow

Bearded cowboy stains in black
and reads dark roads
without a map
seeking:
electricity, E-LEC-TRI-CITY

Light-house beacon straight
ahead, straight ahead
across blank seas to free
seeking:
electricity, E-LEC-TRI-CITY

High-voltage man kisses
night to bring the light
to those who need
t’ hide their shadow-deed
hide their shadow-deed (repeat)
Seek electricity………..
