I could have lived on any cosmic orb,
in any species’ fleshly form,
when I in silent stillness lay,
my life a willing sacrifice…
—I offered it to the ‘fire’ of God’s great Love—
that cleansing, enlightening, enlivening Energy—
that ‘fire’ of God’s great Love.
I could have lived on any alien world,
in any body however strange,
when I in silent stillness heard
the God of all Creation say…
—I AM the UNIVERSE—
and in the power of those few words
of all-encompassing Oneness
I knew the Peace and Joy of Grace.

Great poem as usual.. and I see it dates back to 1995.. you’ve been doing this a long time…
Beautiful and exhilirating!
Truly appreciate your kind words!
Thanks Rob! I actually started keeping a few of my poems in the early 70’s and am in a continual process of revision. Everything needs a professional polish but I do my best to communicate my perceptions in this form of creative writing.
