Faster Than Lightyears-2

IMG_3310 (2)
What is faster than the speed of light?
186,000 miles per second;
Nothing in this physical realm;
But, there is another paradigm;
Traveling faster than light.
It is the mind /spirit within
Taking us places in an instant;
Virtual reality may just be the thing…
Just like Dr. Who or Beam me up Scotty.
Imagine the top of a mountain
A rocky flowing mountain stream
The smile of a baby
A vision of your parent who has passed on.
The mind is a wonderful entity
Transporting us to the depths of the sea
To the outer limits of the universe
To see love in an instant
To touch the mind of God
A prayer // a touch of the divine.
Just imagine a heaven beyond description
Or, the pain of a hell already experienced.
The spirit takes us inward to see who we are;
To remember our childhood vivid and clear
Just like it was yesterday;
Time flashes before our eyes, they say
All in an instant…
All beyond lightyears;
All beyond anything we have yet to imagine
The mind is instant gratification
… or torment!

Beyond Imagination

cEER_0467

 

I have been pushed and shoved all my life

Thanks to friends who cared…

Seeing more in me than I see in myself

Learning to do more than I could ever imagine

From computers to art // writing memoirs // and poetry

Publishing books on Amazon //and writing a blog…

Things I never imagined ten years ago

Susan // Kym // and Tom

Encouraging // urging // helping me

Opening doors to new worlds of wonder

Imagination that knows no end

Wonderful friends all over the world

Communicating with me every day

Keeping me on the edge of inspiration

Our challenge today comes from Mich at d’Verse. Looking at learning that continues throughout life, she asked us to write a poem telling about something we are learning.

I am forever thankful for friends, whom I mention in my poem, who have urged me to move into the world of writing. Without their encouragement, I would not be writing this blog.

It is such a wonderful thing to be able to learn to know all of you. Your great writing and words of encouragement, given to me in your comments, keep me coming back for more. I have learned so much form all of you at the d’Verse poetry group. I am now writing poetry that I never even heard of two years ago! Thank You All!!
