Nebulous

The nebulous of obscure
Each moment in its flight
Is the cosmos of my lure?
And my wonder of delight

Dead pan I drift into the truss
Sifting through the dust and grime
Surrounding me with impetus
Reading through the sands of time

And though some reads seem but a whim
I know each grain in true a door
I never spill the sands in trim
To fill the winds of evermore

I do regret my time is short
The river of infinityís wend
This web of space and time Iím caught
Is quickly coming to an end

But I have faith in the undo
And feel somehow it will renew

Yes, yes...renew, indeed...

for the spirit of your love,
life, gifts, soul...

those will go on, and on.

Think high, Sy...
and wave to the sun, and moon....

Mr. Tabin, it has been much too long since I've read you.  

"I know each grain in true a door"

And I so badly wish I'd written that line...

Sy,

May the days of your life be ever renewed and the srteams of time take you to eternity.
This is a lovely poem to take me through the day. Thank you.

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

When I was a kid and I read Dr. Seuss's "Oh the Places You Will Go" never did I dream that the vehicle would be an adorable huggable poetry man named seymour tabin.



You are a beautiful way to start the day, sy.

Good morning, S.T. (Seymour Tabin a.k.a. Supersonic Transportion ~ of musings, wisdom, and beauty)

"I do regret my time is short
The river of infinityís wend
This web of space and time Iím caught
Is quickly coming to an end"

~ It comes far to fast for most of us!

"But I have faith in the undo
And feel somehow it will renew"

~ Same book, different cover ~ each time the story's written!

But I have faith in the undo
And feel somehow it will renew

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Selah (for Sy)


I left you in winter, the snow stilling my departure,
the wind stealing my breath, much the way the season
takes the leaves you love so; much the way the cold
conceals the colors, the greens you wear in disguise.

Mourn me now as you would the loss of summer,
as you would should you be kept from sunshine.
Collect your tears as winter wanes, reflect on all
I whispered across the distance, defining constance
in psalms of subtle rhyme.

I left behind the wisdom of well spoken words ...


The humility of forgiveness,
                   the humanity of patience,
                                       the fortitude of truth.



The sacrifice of seasons, the climax in cycles of time,
I am now part of so much more; spirituality of water,
commitment of mountains, enlightenment of sky.

Forego epitaphs or eulogies, honor me instead with seeds
of Sycamore trees. I'll hold the moon in my branches
and the earth's mysteries in my roots. My leaves will
carry the wind then weep color when winter reclaims.

Spring will keep my promises, I'll be reborn as bare trees
turn back into forests, beside you on each exploration,
the path not yet taken -- the urging of curiosity,
the cadence of your steps.

Time like words are fluent, my prayers written in rhymed refrain,
this humble poet's turn of page ... to pass through is to remain.

*Selah (Hebrew)[see-luh]
may be the most difficult word in the Hebrew Bible to translate.
Selah is a liturgico-musical mark, something like "stop and listen".
Selah is similar to Amen; stressing the importance of the preceding passage.
Alternatively, Selah may mean "forever", as referenced in the liturgy. Another interpretation
offers that Selah comes from the Hebrew root word [calah] which means 'to hang,'
(ie: Hebrew, to remain/return) Selah has been interpreted by biblical usage to measure the
passage of time and terms of value.


~~~~~~~

Through the water
Through the rain
To the soul of everything
Wash my heart out
On the stones
And I'm almost gone ...


David Gray


        


promise kept ...
thank you Sy ... for everything.


these remnants of a voice and smile,
landscapes cloaked in forest green ...
like your life unfolding mile by mile.

Forever a light in my heart. Simply perfect poem Jan, and perfect choice. *hand over heart* I learned so much from both of you.

Thank you Marge, KA, Sharon & LadyTom.

I appreciate you helping me honor our darling Sy. I was struggling to find the words to do him justice and then I said
what would Sy say.

He loved the idea of planting a tree in his name so perhaps this spring we can plant him a forest. *smile*
He was the most genuine, gentleman and I am better and blessed for knowing him.

thanks again,
jm
