Treasure Island

Patti Masterman

Only Prophets

When the world itself disappears,
There's a higher force majeure,
A portal, that your foot falls through-
Bottomless and boundless, too.

The eye is useless; thinking's stopped,
That potent kernel, 'real' is popped;
You come to realize god is mind,
And all fetters, can unbind

Unthreads needles, goes within,
Where the world's but distant din;
The closet of pure being's air-
Where no time- no space- is there.

And when you find that you've returned,
The minutes of that meeting- burned;
Only prophets allowed to see-
To carry back- the truth of being.

    There is deffinitely a force majeure at work through this poet. Following every
    word closely in this poem and it is so easy to see that this comes from just
    a bit different plane than what the average person walks daily... This is a
    superbly gifted poet who brings forth such high level considerations. Just so
    fantastic..... Keep the ink well full poet lady......

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
