War and the Universe

and when you look up and

watch the carmine sunset riding the clouds,


know that those are the blood

of the universes that fought so valiantly


to have our constellations vibrant and incandescent

in their boundless mausoleums.

Life experiences, mostly. Dreams, wishes, hopes.

I am wondering what inspires you to write your pieces?

Your words are kind, Ray. You have no idea how much these praises mean to someone just starting to fall in love with poetry.

A succinct idea that spreads into the subconscious mind and swells into images - a sense of primeval rightness for me. Please more in this vein!
