Afresh again

Starting the journey afresh

a zero point, a big bang,

an expanding universe,

the endless possibilities.

The long, soft puff of breath

spreading the bloomed spray

in a myriad of directions,

the unknown escaping

to sow itself into the lives

of the unsuspecting,

of the ones searching

for that, as yet, hidden pleasure

or thought lying at the bottom

of the deep well waiting

to be pulled up to the light.


◄ Love for you

Humanity without the humane ►

A mix of the celestial with optimistic outcomes makes this a really good poem for me Jon. It seems to have the essence of creativity at its heart.

Lovely and optimistic - the unknown escaping to sow itself ..........
Sometimes the unexpected does happen and can transform our lives for the better.

For me Jon I found this whole poem so delightful and especially in the way it warmed up from the fifth line.

What an eloquent journey of thought summed up perfectly for me by the lines,

"the unknown escaping

to sow itself into the lives

of the unsuspecting,"

Unsuspecting, but eternally grateful.
