A Proclamation - Revisited [23 Years Later]


Last night
The heavens held me.

I embraced them
As countless times before.

Again tonight
They've absorbed me -
Have forced me
To write these words;

' Cosmos,
Take one millionth
Of a second.
Silence
Your incessant H u u u u u u u u u u. '

' Listen to me. '

' I still love you! '

' Did you hear that? '

' Know it! '

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
