Existence - Poem by Gillena Cox

Yes somewhere a tear rolls down the cheek,
Of yet another him or her or them pursuing,
The nirvanic dream of which so many speak,
With echoes trapped deep in sounds ensuing;

Moonless nights for there are those absolved
Through spin cycles of planet worlds brighter
Than thoughts will venture with time eclipsed
Whose wings span lifetimes rising much higher

When you or they or even i dare ever to confront
Not because we doubt the shadows of night
Or the midday sun's radiant nooness in affront
Try as we may, try as we do, to get it right?

This melody of notes played to the tune 'Existence'
Being, caring, wanting, sharing, and passed tense

    you're right, in a way, the ''nirvanic dream'', as you wrote here, is the search for the lost Eden in the rebirth, but Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, a hope to be with The Lord. (Report) Reply

    Existential beliefs coronated, curvatured, connived and conjectured.In all it deals with the objective to achieve nirvana within and somehow learn the etiquettes of co-existence.I enjoyed reading this one.Thanks for inviting. (Report) Reply
