by Eric Jensen

Dazedly, I awaken to a dream, parallel yet polar to night.
Consciousness unbound; new-found sight.
Like mist rising through a forest of trees,
Amidst sky, leaves and meandering streams—
To mingle with universes beyond this ring.
Wherein softer shades I see…
All in a moment, there is no me!
A soul awash in clear-blue light,
For fountains is the love after winter’s plight.
So come true spring.
Bring warm wishes.
And kiss the epicure goodnight!

Eric Jensen’s biography, in his own words: I am something of a vagabond. I lived in Arkansas as a military brat, and Italy as a young man in the US Air Force. Today, I’m a reservist, and work in behavioral health as a registered nurse in Greensboro, NC—my home away from home in Southern California. My lifestyle revolves around seeing as much of the world as possible, yet being present wherever I am. My goal is to further grow my personal and professional lives into a vocation which enables me to experience life at its fullest, while still broadening my current understanding of the human condition. My first publication: Race, Class and Society: A Philosophic Look at Inequality was released with Empty Sink Publishing’s second issue.
