The First Encounter Of Our Own Design - Poem by James Darwin Smith II

Seize the puzzle that is me
Try putting the pieces together within
Rather going the easy way of out
In the edges of this existence falsely seized
Never feel what first thoughts perceive
Pertain upon the inner most dwellings beliefs
Trivial on a makeshift burden
Shapeshift your thoughts open
Then travel into sublime


Delve into a world of your own free will
Then feel free to come into mine
Let us create our own system of trust
Solar winds of thoughts pertaining freedom
Pondering into the stars traveling abroad


Unlock the mysteries by being mysterious
Soul search beyond space and time
Into a realm of many undiscovered wonders
Epiphanies of all Alien endeavors


Find the stars from where I am truly from
Learn all for which you can


Help me understand
Give me knowledge from your own perspectives
I am open to learn beyond anything
With our knowledge everywhere will be easier for us to explore


If you find me, I will do my best to teach you more
Let us both become enigmas
In the life of normalcy exposed


The key is within you, Please implore
Let us open the universe of unlimited opportunities
In the many encounters of our minds


Yet, Will you arrive in the first encounter of our own design?


Implore, Explore
All is up to you
Share all of your thoughts
I have all the time



Shall we go beyond into the second to the third the fourth of our own design?

    Life Soul Journey Puzzle Pieces

    life soul journey
    written in variant
    puzzle pieces

    we encounter
    range experiences
    in full measure

    emotions
    tempest
    to tea cup

    we time meet
    diverse minds
    personalities

    minds as friends
    minds foreign alien
    minds hostile exile

    we confront thoughts
    we confront required decisions
    we confront consequences

    we must reason weigh
    our encountered soul
    shift personalities

    fit contrasting images
    together score histories
    time life set sail circles

    attracted to desires
    our consumated loves
    written puzzling themes

    such is soul experiment life
    our own quest shape pattern life
    all understood encountered life

    courage especially enjoys
    multitude of choice images
    karma action ability waves

    Loved the variant puzzle pieces and the way you fitted contrasting images together, I also have been attracted and written upon puzzling themes, so I especially enjoyed the multitude of your images. (Report) Reply
