We are the go-betweens
adventurers and pleasure-seekers
crossing together into the unknown
that lies before us
What we are to become is up to God
– but we must act in His stead –
Many of the thoughts that entertain my mind have been learned. I ascribe to the concept of the “Noosphere” which I discovered during my college years among the writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin – the collective mind as resulting from the Evolution of Man.

I sighted a spark in the dark in the distance – a warm fire.
The sun is ushering in its limitless light,
awaiting the moon’s departure, although
sometimes, for some time, they share the sky.
Then on to the moon’s indefensible disappearance
only shining from the sun’s reflection,
until it’s lights-out for the moon.
She died in vain, never realizing her aim.
but ever consequential
the down-slide of my life
yet truth inflamed, indelible
I relish the thought
I take a laughing stance
so rare then, but not now
an objective in the distance
of affection, leaving
a lasting impression
Infusion of rejection
A time of faith ensuing
* [from my work in progress, “24: The Other Side of the Mountain” 2014]
I believe we’re the end result of evolution
brains developing even as we speak
into the reaches of mind over matter.
It would appear we’re all survivors
of one challenge or another
varying by degree & intensity.
Do you call it ludicrous or something to chew on?
