Poetry – A gesture in the face of infinity! (for Nwagbo)

A gesture in the face of infinity! (for Nwagbo)

 

I live my life in a moment

Treasuring everything that comes to be.

I cherish every breath and vision

From endless sky to sparkling sea;

From the chords of planets

To the sound of peoples’ glee;

The flowers, birds and creatures

From elephant to bee.

I strive to make it better

Not content with what I see

For our endeavours on this planet

Usually end in catastrophe.

I’ve only got a short while

But death does not worry me,

For I know, when my life is measured –

A gesture in the face of infinity!

  1. But that you, a spiritual being, were here on planet Earth enjoying a human experience is sufficient in itself. Who could ask for more.

    Enjoy the wonder and awe of another day in paradise.

      1. Doesn’t that amount to much the same thing?

        Are we not, in the vast majority of cases, born innocent? If so, perhaps it is the matrix into which we are born that is innately flawed. Whilst led by the blind, what hope is there for change?

I'd like to hear from you...
