Random Poem:

The Alien
unknown

The beauty of purpose shapes all things
 1
By its history defined and in this
 2
Divinity – so fragile
 3
Among this foreign people I am
 4
Mightily human, bereft of certainty
 5
Surrounded by unfamiliar ways
 6
I can feel all my edges crumble away
 7
 
 
My shaky truce with the universe
 8
Crowns me with its indifference
 9
In the cold wind and emptiness of
 10
Faces all the emptiness of time
 11
Which is only myriad possibility
 12
Really life is always this floating
 13
I look to the sky and give thanks
 14
