Into the Beyond by Hugh Dysart

 

Feels like I’m sinking,

in the cold quicksand,

of age and doubt

The Ides of confusion,

passed unnoticed,

leaving footprints,

in the warm sand,

of someone’s memory

 

Feels like I’m floating,

down northern streams

The scent of new babies,

old stories, happy endings

Drifting ever faster,

approaching the land,

of waterfall rainbows

Cascading into the beyond

 

Feels like I’m falling,

through familiar voices

Stars casting shadows,

over sunny skies

Questions are asking,

answers are fleeting

Everyone keeps falling,

into the beyond

Essential Existentialism

Foreword …

Why are we here? 

What is our purpose? 

What is the meaning of life?

These are the questions that have plagued humanity since the dawn of time.

With the recent passing of Stephen Hawking, one of the most world-renowned physicists, known for his enormous contributions to quantum mechanics and general relativity, one has to only look to his astounding life of physical challenges and dedication to finding the answers to these questions. It begs us to continue to look for our own answers.

This anthology is dedicated to what gives life meaning and purpose personally. On a grander scale, what is the purpose of our existence as humanity?  It is both deeply personal and widely introspective; yet it is also subjective.

Various poets share their verse, prose and poetry about what they perceive to be the meaning of life.  ~ Brenda-Lee Ranta
