~ MY EARTHLY TOPCOAT ~

{Translucency}

~ MY EARTHLY TOPCOAT ~

Awaken
The third eye
Man's vestigial light organ
And the universe
Will whisper her secrets...

Life does the bravest test
For there is true bravery
In growing older
And a power in the magic
Of generations passing
Seemingly
In the blink of God's eye,
The privilege
Is in being alive itself
And recognizing
The horizon's point of view
Looped
In translucent circles
Connecting
The me and you
Of all existence
To the inert
As well as the volcanic
Where
The soul moves steadily forward
Creating worlds anew
With DNA
( Human to Alien )
And leaves
Other worlds behind
No dates nor persons
No rituals or special standing
The spirit
Recognizing the brilliance
Of and in
The light that exists
Between
All forms of life...

Oh, sweet spirit
Awaken,
For the universe is calling,
In its most enigmatic voice,
And so I remove
My Earthly Topcoat,
And Place it
(ever-so-gently)
Across its body,
Of ever-evolving,
Stars...

Hey T....I love how you intricately through your words painted this scene of how the universe, and humanity all tie together in the history's evolving...a loop of continual learning and adding to the big picture of God in everything.  We cannot even fathom the enormity of what we are a part of...but we can feel it there, churning, like your poem makes me feel it.  There are so many secrets and mysteries of the universe to draw to and get a peek of who the Creator and mastermind behind it all is....I love the title, your picture you chose, and the theme of this...Great work!  Love n Hugs, xo ;)

You're right GREG!!!.... It's a VERY good idea to learn what you can from each writer you're able to converse with.....I find that I learn a LOT more when I'm able to talk with them personally....... You seem to be doing a good job at that very thing...... you are SO much better than when I first met you!!........ thank you being so open minded my friend!!...... Lots of Love!!...... Tony.

I love when you do works about Universal Connection principles.
and this is one of the best to date man. This line is my favorite:

And so I remove
My Earthly Topcoat,
And Place it
(ever-so-gently)
Across its body,
Of ever-evolving,
Stars...

It says it all really. (if Carl Sagan had been a
poet, he would have written like this.)

genius man.
