Reflections on the Cosmos (and my place therein)



in all the great cosmos

exists an order

visible yet unseen

crowned with brilliance

from sphere to sphere

extending everywhere

the scepter of truth


the deep longings of my human heart

attest to the fact

that if the world disappeared

i would want it back

not for the comfort of my home

but for the chance to gaze into the heavens

as they rush my soul

with divine turbulence

echoing the eternal promise

that in the vastness of infinite space

i am known






 poem #2

ancient fire

from which all fires spread

flames leaping and dancing

from one generation to the next

an inexorable movement

where father breathes into the sand

imparts to me the secret

and is blown into the wind

i am left with the sense

of entanglement

in the unfolding fraternity of man

from which i accept his truth

as i extend my hands
