A certain kind of forever passed by today –
It was coiled up and corked in a bottle,
And as I watched it ride the ripples
Of the clouds in dank sky,
I sat in wonder –
I thought about the gripping restlessness –
That forever would eradicate,
The funnel of emptiness
Engorging my heart,
That forever would calm –
I contemplated, deliberated and toyed –
With the notion of that forever,
Out of grasp, out of reach
Enlarging my need,
Oh that timeless forever –
I watched as that forever passed by –
Caressed by the glass of antiquity,
And as it rode out of sight
Into sky’s vastness,
My wonder throbbed –

    Very nice poetry, Deborah S. I think this is the first times that I have read your work on poetry soup. (I think that I read some before with music around the time that Michael Jackson died. How are you doing? Do you visit Poetry Soup much? I noticed that you had sponsored some contest that was not yet judged. I don't remember seeing it listed until It was in the judging status. What ever happened on that? It was about Medieval times. I do hope all is well with you. Lovingly, Dane Ann
