The sun's rays over the lawn... ...take me way beyond the immediate.


Before my eyes
The sudden light
Of dawn
Upon the jeweled carpet
Of the lawn
The wondrous birth
Of a universe

A million brilliant shimmering orbs
Spherical rainbow planets
Against the backdrop
Of an emerald eternity

I god
I dare not trod

Lest I destroy
What I did not create

Reviewed by Sheila Roy

Love the picture; it's beautiful and it brings your poem to life. Again, one must be humble to have these feelings. This poem speaks of a time when you must have been feeling an inch tall in comparison to God's work. Lovely imagery~

Reviewed by Jolen Whitworth
A wonderful message. Finely crafted, it leaves the reader plenty of room. It reminds me of a quote I love...

"You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick... The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps... so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in."
-- óDylan Thomas

Reverential awe and wonder on a micro and macro-scale here, Regis! Love this both-ends-of-the-telescope write and you have skilfully captured both omnipotence and fragility in just a few delicately crafted and kaleidoscope lines. Your last 18 syllables neatly communicate what libraries of books fail to! What a gift! TY Kate xx

You are so good at creating and projecting images with your words, it almost feels like I'm there as an observer, and not a reader. Great work, Regis.
