I stood alone in a sea of people,
As the convergence overtook me.
The past, present, and future,
Converging together in a moment.
Bodies gyrated around me,
As melodious tunes filled the air.
The floor recoiled from the shaking bodies,
Creating the sensation of a wave beneath my feet.
Then my surroundings began to fade away,
And I saw the eclipse of a lifetime.
Like the moon traveling across the sky,
The past slowly approached the future.
Embodied as the fiery, life-giving, sun,
The future moved closer to convergence.
In an instant, the paths crossed
Creating the convergent eclipse.
Instead of seeing darkness,
I became aware, miraculously aware.
I saw all, and was seen by all;
Finally, I understood.
Lost in time, I was transfixed in the event;
As it shaped me, and I shaped it.
Suddenly the two orbs began to separate,
And I felt the baggage of the past fall from my grasp.
My adolescence now deceased, my eyes opened
Seeing the world for the first time as a man.

Cody – this is cool! very beautiful – speaks volumes:)
I appreciate your comment. This one may be my favorite poem that I ever wrote. I wasn’t quite sure how to wrap this project up, and this poem came to me while I was at a concert with my wife. I’m very happy with it. Thank you again.
I love that you added a slide show here. I’m going to try that on my blog. Speaking of which, thanks for stopping by!
Thank you for stopping by my blog too. The slideshow made sense for this one.
Cute pic 🙂
Thank you. I’m glad you like it.
