I’ve seen eternity in the night
Cosmic night winds fiercely fight
shielding eyes from radiance bright
As all I’ve feared, flings from my sight
While round beneath in days and years
life survives familiar spheres
and I, I am reduced to tears
For now that I celestial be
My universe has set me free
Still part of Earth’s reality
With cosmic time’s duality
I have my immortality
Penny L Howe, 2014
Happy Weekend everyone, have a great one!

I love this poem Penny. It makes me think of a God or a universe looking down and seeing with sadness the world as it is, and what it could have been.
Thank you Alastair! This poem just came out of the blue, I couldn’t write it down fast enough, like someone was standing behind me dictating – love when that happens. I feel a great connection to well … life I guess! 🙂 xo
I love those poems. Although it has been a while since I have written one, and a while since I have written in my book as well. There’s something missing at the moment. Maybe after the new year it will come back.
The night as an emblem is an inspiration , and your writing here is inspired, indeed.
Thanks, I don’t say this often but I’m rather proud of that poem. It is how I feel inside about life and the universe and so on. 🙂
I can certainly understand how you would be. It’s outstanding.
