Lost in universal wonders...
pondering celestial bodies,
souls I have known...

Lost in firmament vastness...
pondering heavenly ideals,
blessings I have been given...

Lost in the pinion of liberosis...
pondering the concept of freedom,
opportunities I never took...

Lost in the throes of onism...
pondering my humanism,
choices I have made...

Lost in expressions of love...
pondering lissome words,
poems I have written and read...

Lost in continual noisiness...
pondering a sojourn of sorts
taking the time for repose...

Lost in voices of reason...
pondering wisdom and truth
praying to never besmirch them...

Hi Susan, well this appears to have won honours in three contests now, but I only just read it for the first time. I always wish I had more time to read things on Soup, as I know i must miss a lot of gems such as this. Beautifully expressed and I love the structure of it. Gorgeous, rich and whimsical.
