Poetical World

Translucent,
Transcendent,
Tortured,
Truculent
World.

img_0463_400Gliding
Into the
Deep;
The
Silent
Sleep.

Solemn,
Slender,
Seductive,
Succulent
World.

Flying
Over
The
Reef;
The
Jagged
Relief.

Radiant,
Retinal,
Reticent,
Rinsable
World.

How
I yearn
To soak
Myself
In the
Fountain
Of your
Keep.

This
Poignant,
Pristine,
Panoramic,
Poetical
World.

This beautiful poem brought to my mind the verses of Dante as he contrasts the beautiful and the ugly while contemplating and describing the world as he sees it from the moon: "E vidi quell'aiuola che ci fa tanto selvaggi" [and I ssw that flower-bed that makes us such savages."

Yes indeed,I wrote this poem from the position of an observer who sees the world from space,who sees the delicate beauty of our world,how would he feel?Would not this then make him see man's petty squabbles and wars in context? That we all live on this beautiful blue world and that its beauty is so much more important than our wars and disunity...
