Astral Plane - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

I lie down
On the bed
Relax into my own head

I start to feel
The power
Of the astral light

Rising through my body
Faster than
The speed of light

I feel a calm
As my body shoots
Into an astral time

As I ride along
On the colours
Of the astral plane
I see far away places
Sandy beaches
Seas so blue

I see places
With no faces
Faces with no places
People from my past life
People from the next

Then I return to my bed
With peace in my head
Knowing it's not
My journeys end

    Some of these sods leave me cold and sweating and others melancholy beyond belief and just occasionally I wake at 5am and think - Yeah! !
    I think I understand this one but am wary having seen what others made of my writings!

    I am not going to try to fix your poem into my own personal scheme of life; whether philosophical, religious, or whatever..but you have a clear voice, and I share some elements of the 'astral' type of experience; I have dreams, visions and voices- the
    dreams are often, they often come true; the visions much more rare- and they are often in the form of a warning, like some dreams are- but the voices, though extremely rare, are DEAD ON- and though they don't always know the outcome- they force me to focus attention on something I need to, something I don't do well without a stimulus. Love your poems.

    An alternative point of view would be that the Astral Plane doesn't get us closer to God, so why be distracted by it? Suppose God actually spoke to someone travelling the Astral Plane? No, not an illusion that God spoke, but true reality that God spoke... This poem explores that situation.

    The man goes on to dream of Christ, to see the Crucifixion, to see the future Judgement of Christ and to dream of what God wants to do to save as many as possible.

    Enjoyed this amazing poem very much; the world of dream is a facinating one, in some sense somehow connected to the spiritual. Keep it up! (Report)Reply
