Alternate View

Without prompts from meditation or other external factors
I have on a few occasions experienced
a peculiar shift in consciousness
that seems primal.

My center becomes distributed along my spine
as it moves ponderously, knowing all
from a different, bodily sense of knowing
in each joint, muscle, and sinew.

This shift only lasts a few minutes
usually on awakening from a dream
but it seems profound
like a prehistoric sense of what we were.
