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:
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

  1. 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
