A Little Bit of Infinite

Despite the ways

My eyes can see
My ears can hear
My fingers feel
My tongue can taste
My nose knows scents

The world I sense
Is incomplete

And even with our cleverness
The tools we build
Extend each sense
Take me beyond
Known boundaries

The world I roam
Is but a part

To this I add
Imaginings
My wildest dreams
Absurd theories
Draw with words and pix
Artistic renderings

And yet

What mind and heart creates
Is in some sense
Quite finite

(I’ll reach my end
In time and space)

While the possible
Is infinite

Perhaps some day
I’ll spend my last
And come to know
What comes beyond

Then grasp at last
What it all means
Become myself
The infinite

Poetry ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #276

Words arranged in verse
Form a matrix of possibility

An author’s intentions
A reader’s interpretations

Layers deep
Miles wide

All this also present
In a single word such as

Aum

Love

God

Beauty

Perfection

Each a poem with all the
Subtle renderings and possibilities of

Angelou 

Frost

Dickinson

Shakespeare

Plath

The final meaning rests solely
And rightfully with the reader

Vibrance ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #266

 Recall the vibrance
Once displayed in many hues
Now no more than trace remains
Though brightness scattered
Here and there

Decay sets in
Drains true nature
Of its lifely due
Thus am I left
With naught but mem’ries

Fading fast

Remiss this guard
Of summer past
Which lingers still
In so few leaves
Fallen to the forest floor

There soon enough
Back to earth
Will they be drawn
And all that was
Will then be gone

The First Star

Through the clouds
Came first a star
Not enough
To break the spell
Of long dark night
But still a light
Come beckoning

Then soon I saw
Another star
Another then
Now several more
The mother bear
Who points the way
To guiding light

Now clears the sky
The night reveals
A sky of lights
Infinite
And always there
Beyond the clouds
Or light of day
The lights of suns
