thought may be but revolution

thought may be but revolution centered on known knowledge
   while reaching toward knowledge not yet contemplated:

                                                                                               through contemplation on what is shall arise what is not
                                                                                               through contemplation on what is not shall arise what is

perhaps through thought’s revolutions the possibility arises of detachment from anchor’d weight of body:
 skin’s perceptions, eye’s perceptions, ear’s perceptions–
    all perceptions of the body become detached,
       and so detached is Thought itself–
 as multitudes of perception become wound together,
    solitary perception arises,
       floating as on stream of This Life;
          as flows this solitary perception,
             distance may chance to be
                and through distance the solitary perception continues as on stream,
                   falling as through translucent horizon–
                      though the solitary perception seems beyond the barrier of This World and This Life,
                         the solitary perception is still Present–
                            it is through great dettachment and great distance
                               that perhaps the solitary perception resurrects
                                  as though from nothing: perhaps anchor’d hold is given slack
                                     or merely overlooked is the constant existence of the solitary perception–
                                        for this, keep the distance constant, or increasing,
                                           so as to be aware of the solitary perception
                                              while leaving the solitary perception…
                                              : for, once stepping from womb,
                                                what benefit lies in dismissing womb as though nonexistent?
                                              : though through great meditation and being [not yet known by author]
                                                may these attachments of perception be known:
                                                as though they water run from cloud to unpored skin to earth to existence ever-cycling…
