a 'Universalist' !
Thus is a “Poet”....
....remaining blessed or cursed
with a grand-fine heart
of magnificent fragility,
far too easily lost
to rain or tears....
....remaining love’s stranger
just beyond the horizon
as a spectral silhouette
fading in a broken dream....
....remaining hopelessly incredulous
as to why men are folding up
for hanging in corporate halls
to Nature’s inestimable chagrin....
....remaining an unanchored spirit
lost and forever adrift,
(in the depths of words unwritten)
where comets weep, and galaxies dance
over ruined mountains by starlight,
to the music and mystery
of "Deep-Time's" eternal schemes....
....a “Poet” is thus!
* PLEASE CONSIDER ACCEPTING MY
FINAL "POETRY CHALLENGE!':
THANK YOU so much!
