Life At A Glance
and post notes and photos about your poem like Gregory R Barden.
The moment stretched forever with his breath
His mind and hopes there spinning with the earth
For ne'er before had he known, birth to death
An instant that so changed his mortal worth
For there before him danced thru naked space
ALL life thus known and all ... the human race.
