Eternal Bliss - Poem by Val Brooklyn Rogers

On a still DAY there is
Omnipotent clarity.
A flock of birds in the
Far distance
I probe inside their minds
Beckoning them, carry me.

On this still DAY NOTHING moves
Except the sun and the sea
And whatever I will, it will be
Somewhere on another plateau
A bell is ringing. I will it to
Cease. A canary is singing.
I will it to be.

Flowers are blooming at the exact
Time I inhale a fresh bouquet.
Everything replenished.
Nothing expires.
This still DAY will last and LAST,
UNTIL everything comes to pass.

Eons have elapsed and this still
Day is still
And has not faded.
Everything OF it is tangible, as
I will it.

The still air
The bird songs
The fragrant bouquet
The awe of it all

As I will it.
It begins.
And nature is purely,
Pleasantly pleased
