I Saw the Universe
I can see the cerulean blue of the skies
Or the indigo of the night
I can see the stars wink, the grin of the moon
During the changes of it's monthly face
I am in awe
I see the sun on it's annual trek
Alternately awakening the life in the earth
And then fading away to allow it to sleep
Until the next spring
I am told the Universe is "out there"
Beyond those stars, moon and sun,
Yet the power of what I can see
Is a fathoming beyond my comprehension
I am in awe
"Out there" no time, no seasons pass
No sense of age, hatred or loss exist
Only the infinity
0f the Universe
What IS "out there"?
What IS the Universe that has no end?
What IS the power that creates all this?
I want to see it too
And then I remember.....
I saw it once, this gift of glimpse
In the eyes of a granddaughter five minutes old
As I held her to my heart and gazed
Into the depths of eternal wisdom and love
It was but a moment
Before the bonds of her earthly body
Began to pull her
To her purpose of this lifetime
But from that instant I knew
The Universe is everywhere Love exists
Each one of us carries
The Universe in our soul
It is not "out there, but "in here"
And can be glimpsed in the
Eyes of a newly born child
As she shares the messsage she brings
of Universal Love.
I am in awe

Have you ever experienced infatuation with someone you know is not a good match for you? Or how about an interesting relationship that roots itself deep in your memory...

Four Poems: Two for the Devil, Two for Peru
Here is some witty poetry (not sure if that is the proper word: witty, but it will do): one poem on the Aztec year 2012, a year that has been in the public's eye quite a lot; one on cloning, and the biblical end time events--which, if I may add seems ripe for the monster events that are said to take place; and two poems dealing with some tradtions of Peru; one imparticular, on vacationing, where not to go; all the makings for some thought.

Isn't that what they say?But what does that mean?There's no definition that mayanswer that question...
Mechanical Poetry; Part Two
What do you do when you want to write poetry? I hope your answer is "I start writing." Even writing a bad poem is better than waiting for the "right words." You can always throw it away, and the process has begun. You'll start to find the words sooner than if you had just waited. Here are some more ways to get started.
Take some time to stop and look at nature. Pick up a rock or two and think about where it might have started out and what it might have gone through to end up where you found it.
Learn About Love From Poet Rumi
In this modern age of technology, busy lifestyles, and obsession with consumerism have taken a lot of the romance and love out of our lives. The Internet has become a medium to connect with people as everyone is finding it a lot harder to meet one another in the 'real' world. It has undeniably also become a place of voyeuristic fantasy in the realms of sexuality on pornographic sites. What ever happened to true love? Are our priorities so messed up that romance has been forgotten, only to be experienced vicariously through television and movies? The answer is no. Romance will never die; we just have to feed it with our energy.

The Crusader: A Search for the Virtue Inside (an excerpt of an Epic Poem)
On through the darkness she searches the bonesSeeking the hand of her love;Deep in the stillness, the maid searches on,Petitioning help from above.Onward she gropes through the flesh and the bloodOf the warriors disfigured and maimed;She carries no hope for the life of her love -For naught but his body she came.To see his face and cradle his head,Hold him close to her breast;Shed bitter tears at her sweet love's endAnd give him peaceful rest.

Poetry and Popular Culture
Is poetry too complicated for the average reader? Is it too cryptic, scholarly? If you ask a large group of average people what they like or don't like about poetry, you'll get a few different answers, but there is an overwhelmingly common category of responses.
You can do and you can bewhatever you want.You have the power,and the right,to make the changes.
