Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

The Big Bang
flyinghawk

There is a dream outside the temple
 1
There is a star of light inside the temple
 2
There is boy flying with butterflies around the temple
 3
Temple that is the body or the body that is a temple
 4
Who knows how it was in the beginning
 5
Was is a word
 6
Or was it a light?
 7
And how we know that the beginning already happened?
 8
Where is written The Big Bang
 9
is not a stranger knocking  soon on your door
 10
I see
 11
Life is running in cycles as it likes circles
 12
The truth is The Big Bang has already been here and there
 13
Quite almost everywhere
 14
The only place where it needs to go
 15
To spark the explosion of Creation
 16
Is the gate with many bars hiding somebody and something
 17
Inside our hearts of hearts
 18
And when the bomb of truth explodes
 19
The bars are broken
 20
And The God Opens the Heart of you and me and all of us
 21
Not from the cloud up there
 22
as they were telling you before  
 23
but from the Heart inside you
 24
Where the God smiles at you and tells you
 25
Yes I am who you are.
 26
We are one and we’ll always be.
 27
And don’t ask me if I am human
 28
because I am not
 29
because you are not
 30
 
 
We all are God inside the God and outside the God
 31
As you are made of stars with planets spinning inside you
 32
and the sky is made of atoms
 33
with electrons spinning around nucleuses
 34
It’s time to wake up and say
 35
Good morning to Heaven on Earth
 36
