If Only Words Could Tell


Swirling, twirling, Whirling, all colors of a rainbow, its crest,

Spinning, twisting, turning, burning, searching, in our quest.

Flashing, crashing, dashing, are all across an evening's sky,

Bursting, erupting, storming, surging, meteors, asteroids fly.

Shooting, streaking, striking, matter collide, at heaven's gate,

Magnificent, spectacular, wonders, the universe to perpetuate.

Ignition, combustion, its percussion, an origin, to demonstrate,

A validation, certification, of its own verification to substantiate.


Questions, perplexions, misconstrued and all out of sync,

Mysteries, puzzles, enigmas, conundrums, make us think.

The transcendental, unfathomable, incomprehensible, all,

A knowledge found when searched, for minds, even small.

The inexplicable, enigmatical, seemingly veiled in obscurity,

An understanding, becomes logical, examining from A to Z.

Outer limits become within reason, in conceiving minds to fly,

As verses on blank pages, enlighten us all, when we but try.


Atoms, a molecular structure, evolving into each planetary orb,

Revolving in an assigned position, about stars, we may absorb.

A conjugation of life's components, its schematic view to relate,

Are part and parcel of a universal plan, is so ours to investigate.

The human mind, of its limitations, we all may try to compensate,

A feasibility of all creation, of its likelihood, our faiths, may actuate.

Our God and the Great Creator, designed us each to question all,

Every beginning, its questions, of that to swim, fly, walk, or to crawl.

Yes, it's one of the great things of life, that we can learn something new if we just try. Blessings. whonu

The universe is so astounding. So is the fact life exists. I love that we can learn everyday. :)

Thank you friend and may the blessings of all be upon you.

Many thanks to my friends, Michael, Eric, Ann, and Gypsy for your fine words of encouragement. Many blessings to all. whonu

Thank you, Eric. Iambic Pentameter is close, yet I have always considered my work is a personal "Free Verse". You realize us fellows and gals who choose to write poetry may well develop each's own "style" called "Poetic License". I like to include photos to enhance the mood. Blessings to all, my friend. whonu

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on January 24, 2018:

This one you knocked a home run right out of the park on the first pitch.

I love all those words put so eloquently put together.

Could you tell me what "style" of poetry that it is. I really like the flow.

I could only think Iambic Pentameter.

Thank you.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on January 24, 2018:
