    Any thoughts on the following?

    Demon Seed, Dean
    Koontz

    Humanity yearns so desperatly
    to equal God's great creativity.
    In some creations, how we shine:
    music, dance, stiryweaving, wine.

    Then thunderstorms of madness
    rain upon us, flooding sadness,
    sweep us into anguish, grief,
    into despair without relief.

    We're drawn to high castles,
    where old hunchbacked vassals
    glare wall-eyed as lightning
    flares without brightning.

    Laboratories in the high towers,
    where the doctor wields power,
    creating new life in a dark hour,
    in the belfry of the high tower.

    It appears that Poemhunter's template doesn't recognise the word 'drop'.. but amends it with an extra 'p' - one of my recent pet-hates.. ah well...

    Moments of transcendence occur when a veil is lifted and a connection made between ourselves and something or someone else. We dropp back from the ordinary and in an ecstatic moment sense our true location, as compared to our ordinary, taken-for-granted location. This can happen with another person or another being: a tree, an animal, a cloud. The usual relationship drops away and we meet on a soul level.
