Poem: Where Sorrow Ends

I don’t write much poetry any more, but I used to be an avid writer of poetry and verse. My topics mostly ranged from philosophical to spiritual to nature.

Here’s one example an attempt to get beyond our temporal conceptions and grasp the void beyond.

 

“WHERE SORROW ENDS”

Beauty beheld in fragrant states;
surfing across sweeping thought waves.
Tragedy and ecstasy, here are unified,
out beyond the gravity of space and time.

Concept finds no grounding there.
Brilliant men have failed to dare
go where the world is not born;
and so they are by cravings torn.

To be a warrior and a sage
without the fear that grips our age.
To travel where the sages roam,
finding, at last, the peace of home.
