LOVE FROM A TO Z


Love from A to Z:


The gentle dispersion of atoms
Of a body alone.

This autumn moment of complete perfect sadness
Radiation in the heart
Bringing to the eye
The world instantly entire,

Oh so lovely circling
Brave sun gilded orb
Provocative and sad
Containing all:

A moment, a dot
To be loved utterly
By the lover who remembers
But no longer knows fear.

So the huge restless roar of the torrential wind
Brings suddenly, fancifully
Waves of soft snow.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

FROM Moty McKeever:

I found this in an old binder of Joshua Zim's poetry and letters that I am looking after. _

FROM Douglas Penick:

Thanks Monty.
I wrote this at the conclusion of the Four Karmas fire puja which the Vidyadhara led and which corresponded with the time of Joshua's death.
I had almost forgotten it.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
