Here's the rest of this little experiment in free writing poetry.

a thought of beauty scared away by negative thought is easily bought as if given free only to put on hold the bold a thought so beautiful an angels breathe could carry it across time in a gentle rain shower all living things could then feel its beauty and be one with this beauty which might strive to be alive to share the air with all that lives the beauty says, “I’ve seen things eyes have never seen more beautiful than a rainbow in a waterfall I tell you of things I’ve heard melodies so pure as to melt the strings of a harp while transcending the harpist and audience to states of mind and emotion never before visited open your minds and allow the essence of life to dilute the sin nature of physical existence imagine the soul as it reveals itself beyond the limitations of the body be your soul end the struggle accept the oneness of being you are a part of all that is all that surrounds you, you also surround blend in let your existence be noted by your extraordinaire ability to be congruent with all that is alive with all that is you so that you may become aware that the best of you is actually the rest of you

Hi Bill, After reading this, I was wowed and wowed again. Excellent thought provoking last stanza, especially the last two lines. :-) Alexis

Definitely something to ponder. We know so little because of our lack of faith. We keep asking our Creator, why? We're not enlightened enough to understand the answers we ask for. We are often given the understanding we seek, just not in words. Thanks for your comments, Alexis. Smiles ~ Blessings, Bill

Texas Poet and Friend of the entire Universe, now you know why U-niverse begins with U. Sage & shalom advice in this creative writing, sir. Joe DeMino said some of this in a comment to me ... U know

It's not easy to pen something related with existentialism. The second stanza carries a lot of meaning and it's very prolific, profound and reflective...

Much wisdom flows through your words Bill--especially in the third stanza. You kept my attention throughout with lines like these: ---a thought of beauty scared away by negative thought--- all living things could then feel its beauty---the best of you it actually the rest of you. Your muse rocks my friend.

I do too, Caren. The drifting in space is a normal activity of mine as I meditate before going to sleep at night. Thanks for the comment my friend, Bill

"imagine the soul as it reveals itself beyond the limitations of the body" Very inspiring write, Bill. Those who have ears will listen -- and those who do not, may just develop some after reading this fine work.

I hope so, Joe. It would be a good thing if more would look beyond the obvious and through the illusion of a world that isn't what it seems to be, as you have. Thanks for reading and commenting on my poetry, Joe. Have a great day! Bill

Bill, you've written a beautiful poem. The writing is very wonderful, and the visual is also outstanding. I thoroughly appreciated this piece of writing, which appears to be meandering on appearance, yet your portrayal gives me thought and plenty to consider.

It felt a little meandering to me as I wrote it, but it seemed to be going somewhere I wasn't sure of. I just let it go. Thanks for looking further into it. I appreciate your reading and commenting on my poetry my friend. Bill

Of the three you created and posted, this one is my favorite. I especially like the phrase a thought so beautiful an angel's breath could carry it away. This may be rambling on the surface, but your powerful imagery gives me pause and much to think about
