Back To The Light

Screen Shot 2021-12-07 at 10.03.35 AM

Slipping into the micro-shrooms
I slide into my poetry.
A new poem, unexpectedly comes
after coffee and after breakfast.

I always feel the urge to write a poem,
any poem, every poem, like a warning
Like running to the bathroom, quickly
to get to the keys just in time .
Now these little helpers,
entering my blood stream
twice a week, free- flowingly,
have pulled me from depression
and coaxed my innate creativity.

Really there are still surprises,
the good kind , that we can find.
After death and loss and grief,
these moments feel like a sunrise.

No, I’m not tripping, I’m not drugged
I feel more hyper real and I write.
I sing, I build, I play piano and I smile.
Little tiny particles that grow in the dark
have helped me back to the light.

Slipping into the micro-shrooms
I slide into my poetry.
A new poem, unexpectedly comes
after coffee and after breakfast.

100mg every 3 days for the last 3 months.
It might not be for everyone….but it’s been good for me.

    Now that’s interesting! Hard to imagine you being even more creative than usual. 🙂 I wonder if this is available / legal in the US. And a really nice lyrical description you’ve written!

    • Thanks Dale: I think a lot depends on what state you live in.. Oregon and California have legalized this…not sure what others…As I said in Footnote, I’m not advocating this for everyone…it could even be the placebo effect, but I feel better now…after losing Natascha in September…I see beauty in the sunrise again.

    Karima, I love every single word of this beautiful writing…in fact, I was reading it loud…reciting…just like the spoken word…the frozen world…starts to melt just enough…to warm this Universe…through the sunrise…of your light…your rhyme…your lines…through your eyes…pure divine…so lyrical…truly magical…you’re so expressive…that every single line of yours is alive…that it can birth a new life…a new line…a new rhyme…a new time…

    Translation of my crazy scribbling: I love Digital Rabbit Hole to the Core

    • Oh Navin my new friend and amazing poet…your comment lifted me off the ground.. left me weightless and each line you wrote, was another gust of wind.. You are an extraordinary commentator. You not only see deeply, you also allow the poetry to enter you, make you read it out-loud,..You say my lines are lyrical and magical..well, so are yours:) This comment was exhilarating..it filled me with helium and sent me far away from where I was…and your “translation” well My blog is feeling that love, Navin..You are something else!! So pleased you landed on my page.. that very first day.

    So beautiful words and emotions. I can fully understand your feelings and wishes. Your expressions are so clear and touching. All the best for your future endeavours. 👍💐💖 But one question, whether psilocybin has been medically advised to you?

    • Hello Kaushal…thank you so much for your encouraging words on my poem and best wishes for my future..it means a lot to me. You have always been so supportive! As for the psilocybin microdosing, yes it was recommended by a professional, who also happens to be a very good friend as well as my doctor:) It is for a finite time (not forever)

  13. Thank you so much dearest…after Nat’s death, I was a bit lost and depressed.I am so much better now..and feeling like more of my old self. Thank you for saying that, “You are writing great stuff” You know how I feel about your own writing, so this is a big compliment indeed.. Hugs and thank you too for your patience when I was still deeply in my trench of grief 🙂 You are really such a good friend!
    🤗🙏❤️🌹
