    There is only one thing I can see,
    A great blackness ahead of me,
    And into it i choose to proceed.

    After this I can finally see,
    That this path was not meant for me,
    It would be the end for me to proceed,

    Thus I choose for me,
    Though I can not even see,
    That death will never conquer me,

    But as soon as I can see,
    A darkness begins to envelope me,
    In terror I scream,
    With no one to hear but me,
    And thus I begin to weep.

    As I look at the last ray of light I'll see,
    I think of what will become of me,
    And with this thought in my mind,
    I choose to rebel against destiny,

    With a great struggle I am freed,
    I thank only me,
    For my escape from eternity.

    Resurrecting this once-but-no-longer "stickied" thread, instead of creating a new one, for two reasons:

    1.) To continue refraining from overloading the forum with too many threads by one user.

    2.) To again highlight some worthy posts from the past, which deserve being read by a new audience.

    * * *

    Will be posting two separate poems momentarily.
    "May my ripples benefit ALL beings (everyone/everywhere/everywhen) and catalyze only cascades of goodness, with zero unwanted repercussions or unintended badness. Truly & sincerely."

    “Birds raise your eyes to the sky—
    Where wise billows steadily glide—
    Those clouds know where they are going—
    And despite how slowly they are floating—
    Those clouds know they will arrive on time—"


    * * *

    entitled: "Cloud-Paced Punctuality (Humbles The Hasteful)"

    * * *

    Dedicated to ALL atmospheric phenomena (and ALL aerial animals).

    * * *
    * * *
    * * *

    Inspired by an actual occurrence I witnessed sometime between 2006-2009.

    After walking down to the shore of a pond that borders my mother's backyard, my gaze noticed some large birds soaring around-and-around in a spiraling pattern (quite far off in the distance).

    It was because of those birds that my contemplations also began to factor the "slow-but-steady" procession of clouds as well.

    That then led to the conception of the original version of this poem.

    "By the birds, a spiraling sign—
    The clouds know where they are going—
    And they know they'll be on time—"


    Which has continued getting tweaked over the years since then.

    Such as:

    "Brought by birds—
    Thy eyes gaze upon a sign in the sky—
    The clouds up there know where they are going—
    And the clouds know: they'll be on time—"


    Or:

    "Raise thy eyes—
    To spy a sign in the sky—
    The clouds above know where they are going—
    And they know: they will arrive, right on time—"


    Not to mention:

    "With eyes allured upwards, by wings that spiral roundwards—
    We behold a second sight: a vapor procession in slow flight—
    Those herds of clouds know where they are going—
    And those clouds know: they'll be on time—"


    And many more.
    (Numerous variations in wording or formatting.).

    It's quite incredible to consider how many possibilities are available to a small piece of poetry.

    Super-massive amounts of options!

    And no matter which version you feel is the finiished poem, those alternate iterations each have their own particular points of appeal as well.

    In the end, I suppose it is personal self-expression being exercised within every miniscule decision of how to poetically arrange the phrases.

    Yet, hopefully, the ones shared here are sufficient to catalyze you (the reader) to imagine something akin to the intended vision that the initial natural-spectacle elicited to begin with!
    "May my ripples benefit ALL beings (everyone/everywhere/everywhen) and catalyze only cascades of goodness, with zero unwanted repercussions or unintended badness. Truly & sincerely."

    entitled: "Earth Ode"

    Summer Solstice 2022
    (June 21st)

    * * *
    * * *
    * * *

    This poem was spontaneously inspired by simply sitting mostly bare-bodied in the backyard and basking in the Sun, whereupon the Planet herself seemed to be channeled through the Muses of the Mind.

    Only afterward did I realize that the Summer Solstice was today.

    Which means there's a good chance that the seasonal shift factors-in as a major influence.

    Either way, this piece of poetry is intrinsically dedicated to our Planet we call Earth.
