Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


What is existence that merely lives,
moves and breathes and simply is;
life that just takes space in time
or leaves its beauty so sublime;
a slow dance glide that never soars,
or fandango spins across the floor;
one that wastes the gift and dies,
where n'er another being cries
- or in its passing Heaven sighs...

    I loved this spite of Deb's assessment.....I think it speaks with clarity and in just enough between the lines about this dance we dance upon the stage of life. Wow....

    For the one word [fandango] and the metaphor of the dance you won, yet I KNOW you could do much more with this challenge. Congrad's on Your WIN!

    Hi Craig-- this one I would call a true poetic piece of work. "Being" and purpose in life.. always our ongoing dilemma.

    clever poetry is this, the spice of life itself is simplicity, problem today no one can find it...

    This poem makes me think so much of my dad Craig..He can do so much in his life if he wants to ,yet due to his depression..Living is a far cry from existing..I do hope that when i 'll get to be his age, it would be only the beginning of many new experiences.lExcellent poem..reminding me 'to live and not exist' : )

    Well let's hope we leave a little beauty....great job Craig.....
