Orion Nebula

I see things with a different light,
From the center of my soul,
It shines to illuminate my world.

Making me look deeper.
Layers murky yesterday,
Suddenly become clear.

Allowing me to see beyond the surface.
What everyone sees but most donít recognize.
To the very core of the ecosystem.

Not all at once, but layer upon layer,
The totality of the universe causes me awe.
I am so small,
I am a poet.

I very much relate to this poem and to your commitment to sharing your recognized kinship to "All That Is." "Seeing things with a different light" can seem at times to be a hardship, but your words remind us of what a blessing this quality really is. Very much enjoyed this poem - style, words, message - all of it.

Walt, yes! you are a poet, no! you are not small and yes! the concept of the vastenes of the universe can give not only awe but a big headache, like, when meditating, trying to understand the meaning of God.
Keep on growing, you never was small.

Perspectives of the reality of our frailty and diminuitive size relative to everything. Will awe anyone that ponders and seeks an answer. Like layers of shifting silt this heavenly system has been built.A good analogy of relativity from the human aspect. Jon Michael Willey

Super poem Walt! I love the thrill that comes from "seeing things with a different light" Poets have that in common!

Poets have an intensity that others' don't. We are fortunate not to waste our talent and tapping onto the pulse of the Universe is our right.
