All things are
Lost.
The world turns and no day
Remains the same.
And moments slip to past with only
Memories kept in temporary
Holding.
All things are lost.
Place your hands open to the
Night -
There are stars a billion years
Gone…yet even they press
Against you.
Yes, all things are lost.
But something…something unseen and
Full of all that’s ever gone
Before -
Something like this remains.

Yo Ericc,

I like this view of the infinite and everlasting space/time very much.  This is a good, and wise poem.

You share such deep awareness with your insightful, beautiful words, dear Eric. A slight tremor is my answer and confirms your theory.

Love,
Margherita
