A Peak at the Universe
A Peak at the Universe

Is there life out there?

I really want to know

To be a person aware

Of the science all aglow

Possibilities floating in the air

My heart sings at the flow

Of stars in the atmosphere

Beings I really want to show

All of our ways, our sun’s glare

Huge, but simply our orb bestows

Life to the vast universe so clear

Life on other planets tell me so

Desire to meet them do I dare?

I feel their presence very close

Do they know how much I care?

Do not know when but I suppose

We will meet with much to declare

Could our humanity reach across

Time and space to the great somewhere? 

Can not see them yet they’re

There I know an inner glow

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Beautiful poem! I think the miracle (and gift) of life is quite universal… and that reality surpasses fiction! Thanks for sharing 🙂


    1. June, I fear that I am getting to be like the sales guy who always says, “I can match that!” But FYI, I share your fascination with black holes. In fact, I was reading about black holes one day and wrote a poem about them, “The well of fire” (http://bookofpain.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/the-well-of-fire/) in which I use falling into a physical black hole as a metaphor for meeting the Divine. If you get a chance to read it, I hope you like it!
