Best Daver Austin Poems

+ Fav Poet



I suppose it started in the womb    or
Ages before
What in mind’s eye a dust
Beyond the miniscule
Might be seen nor here nor there

Is it the powder of creation
      slowly fusing together.
            a slow coating of awareness?

But surely this divine stuff inhabits all
      swirls through the universe
            slowly comes together in those somewheres
And though we seem blind 
      cannot see it  
            or grasp it
It must be there

    daver, I have no problem here with formatting but then again, I do not do the fancy line breaks that you do. That could maybe give me troubles!!

    These lines reveal much more than what appears on the surface in the first glance. You have almost tried to touch the very core of the Universe. Great write my friend and thank you for liking my Song lyrics. Hope you would have found the Song on my Music You Tube channel ‘RavindraKK1’ not bad, if not very good. Love and best wishes always .Ravindra K Kapoor..Daver Austin

    I haven't forgotten how you abhor most popular songs, DAver. ARe there any rock or popular music musicians that you do admire? Or is your taste purely for jazz and orchestra type and classical music?

    Yes, I remember this one and I LOVE it, Daver. So tell me, why do you hate the Beatles so much?
