Questions
Questions…universe and meaning

Although the stars profess to know,
those secrets from which we are so removed,
their whispers in softness glows within their being,
and I look up and question them,
their memories of aeons past,
when life was dust and potentials cast
by hands of omniscience intent.

How I wonder their secrets,
their colored dreams,
when suns begot gases and dust
and gases and dust begot suns,
in this eternal shaping of life;
and we evolved in sentient mind
to stand and wonder still, the meaning.

Truth as elusive as butterflies,
one step ahead in ragged course,
and we so resolved to catch that colorful truth,
yet a grasping hand is slow
and we so far from what we ask,
living is all we can do,
and peer up to heavens with gratitude,
our questions like mists upon the waters.

    You seem to be in a romantic mood with the Universe and stars tonight, Tony. I love the wonder you bestow upon this verse and your reader. Marvelous!

    Thanks Phyllis, yes I’ve been told by many that my moods are given away by what I write each day. I am an open book and what I feel becomes ink on the page. Thank you.

    I always enjoy your work that takes us to the stars, so vivid and contemplative. You write with so many colors, on so many topics, it’s truly admirable. Don’t laugh…but I always hear Carl Sagan’s voice when you pen space. 🙂

    Best,
    Mel

    That’s a compliment in itself Mel, I loved Carl Sagan and all his docos. Thank you for your kind words.
