+ Fav Poet



I came unaware; a heartbeat 
comfortable in place 
forced onto existence 
on a starry night 
before the light began.

time opened up 
and reality flew by
on a memory tapestry
Interwoven signed and
sealed as a solitary life 

from the beginning
to the end, all was  
destined to be remembered
by thoughts alone
creations of vanity
shared in a connected 
cosmic consciousness 
we can only guess at.

CAK 3-25-2013


From birth to death
Life is a creation of unknown origin
intertwined and interrelated
with all earthly things.
existing in the end,
only in memory

    One day you will meet the designer and he will answer all your questions, even the ones you haven't thought up yet. He does promise "Seek and ye shall find." I enjoy your thought provoking writes.

    Richard, faith answers all questions. It is a gift bestowed on a few. I do believe in a creator but as a member of the human persuasion, we exist outside of any remote understanding. Thank for your comments.
