The Riddle Poem

Riddle Poem
Opus 140

I have become a citizen of the Cosmos.
I dwell among the stars.
I have crossed the universe many times,
Gone over the rainbow, and beyond paradise.

If you wish to find me you must find paradise,
Go over the rainbow, and look for the Ventanas.
To visit me you must find the path of Las Ventanas.

The Ventanas are the windows of the soul.
They allow me to glimpse eternity.
They open only as you grow in wisdom,
And reject the notions of boundaries.

One cannot be a citizen of the universe,
Without an expansion of the mind.
You must be a believer in worlds unknown.
And follow your heart, as your only guide.

Nothing is more releasing than to follow your heart.
It is a quest which manifests your joining with,
The eternal soul of all humankind.
The realization of the ultimate quest,
For life purpose.

I have come that far to know that I shall
Face God with an understanding
Of all that is real.
I shall see through the mirror clearly.

This poem has a riddle and a hidden message.
Can you find out what they are?
One morning, while walking the dog,
It all became so very clear.

The Riddle is that all the places mentioned are actually where I live. For example: Paradise Boulevard, Rainbow Road, Universe Blvd, the Ventana Ranch, and Las Ventanas Dr. I live in Albuquerque, NM.

The message is that one can find the meaning of life right where they live and they don’t have to take a space ship to the stars to understand what is truly real.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
