By Mike Turner
Our time here is but a moment A transitory existence on an uncertain plane We quest for things with no meaning Wealth, power, influence All fictions of the corporeal sphere Holding no permanence There is but one thing eternal: Love Manifested in our art expressing it Echoed in the memories of those sharing it Renewed in rejoining the Infinite The Alpha and Omega Beginning and End Love with all your heart Freely, unreservedly For Love is the one thing we truly possess In this world of impermanence Its power and beauty Being found only when given away

Nicely put, Mike. Well done 🙂
Love and art, eternal.
In this contemporary technology driven and materialistic world, Mike’s poem comes as very soothing to heart and mind. We all ignore and forget how love can surpass all other attractions in the world.
It’s a good feeling to read such poetry
Great art Mike.
Love is the prize.
