I AM

courtesy : d'verse





I am existence
I am in relationship
With the universe
Dusts and the stars
Stare at me
We do feel related
The universe will be non-existent
When I shall cease to be
What lingers
When all is said and done?


Posted for d’Verse where I answered the first question (who are you and whom do you love?) asked by MarinaSofia and included the last question as a part of my poem

  1. I love the way you included the last question into your answer to the first -and goodness, you do go far and wide, soaring above, in your inter-connectedness with the whole universe.

  12. This is the kind of verse I like. Straight-forward, direct, not embellished, not too subjective, but yet so deep and medititive

  19. I like the connection you make with the universe Sumana, excellent in its succinctness.

  20. perhaps you shall be again, or we linger liked whispered words as long as our memory or poetry remains.

  21. I, too, appreciate the connectedness in this, as well as the thoughts on the brevity of the universe. Wonderful~

  22. This is beautiful - our relationship with the All That Is is what keeps us going.

  23. Beautiful Sumana...every one is connected to universe:)

  24. What lingers? Who knows? An atheist believes nothing. A religious person believes in after life. A Hindu believes in reincarnation...A Christian believe you only get one chance at being alive.We will all find out eventually:)

  25. life is said to be an everlasting song and your poem a lovely refrain

  26. Yes indeed Sumana: "When I cease to be What lingers
    When all is said and done?" in many ways the ultimate question of mortality... Love, for sure would be my answer - thanks for this... With Best Wishes Scott
