On the current of starlit miracles




On the current of starlit miracles 

As I unravel the un-speakable terrain
I roll back the carpet of hate dark as 
night in tear-wet smiling I beg for peace -
file my purpose with the universe and 
then take flight in the updrift 
of starlit miracles already 
visible on the fringe 
of the blue marble 
shimmering
spinning 
together  
as
o
n

  1. I love both the shape and the wish..you wouldn't think it would be so hard...and yet sometimes the world seems to fight against miracles and straight...a bright, shiny and glowing poem

  11. For those of us that have through (comparatively) peaceful times it is hard to see that peace can come to such a diverse species that looks for any excuse to hurt and humiliate each other. That coupled with selling our earth to developers who care not for a thriving future world for all our children but only money in their pockets now. Sadly the people we elect to govern us merely provide us with sops to satisfy us and think nothing the future either, while justifying war with anybody just to keep us prepared for worse to come. When hope is all we have left there will be a tax on that too!

  15. I like how you resolve the woeful world by looking further especially "file my purpose with the universe". Great pattern of words too, from the many to the one - OM

  18. Spinning altogether as one. Nice work.
    I recently read that the left wing and right wing are still attached in flight to same bird.
    The top spins; as does the world and life.
