Stellar Explorations

Stellar Explorations

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

You know what they say about the unexamined life...

"

The universe within me

is largely unexplored

I’ve concocted constellations

that have somehow gone ignored

 

The time is ripe to launch a quest

to stars among my visions

where heart and soul and dreams combine;

the best of all collisions

 

Return to Earth, now satisfied,

my inner world complete,

fortunate to find the ground

firmly at my feet

my cup of tea as they say ;) consummate introvert am i! your poem is inspiring, and a challenge ...we all can benefit from the brutal honesty of introspection ... your poem makes it a lovely trip but i must say that it may be rocky for many ..with many a mile to go before the realized beauty ... so glad i found this one Rita ...sorry it took me so long! this is a beautiful side of you i have not read yet ..nice one

Rita, you are the Queen of the fun little quick reads that always bring a smile to my face. Somehow it is as if your poems sing themselves to us, that is how smooth they flow. Very nice my friend.

Wow! Thank you so much, Jack!
A beautiful write about the universe within you. Skillfully crafted free style metered rhyme which I enjoy. Imagery is good as are the descriptives. You paint a vivid picture of how you see your inner self that any reader can appreciate. Flow is good; line to line transition and breaks are well done. Very nice rhythm. Nice use of enjambment. Rhyme is good as is the rhyme scheme. A good mix of feminine and masculine end line rhyme that is executed very well in this piece. Lovely depth of feeling. I can relate. Good word choice. Excellent closing lines. Well penned and a much enjoyed read. Write on!

I like this one. The imagery is very dream like. Looking within from time to time is a very wise thing to do.

'...the time has come to launch a quest
to stars among my visions
where heart and soul and dreams combine;
the best of all collisions.'
I totally love this part! And the way you took us through the whole 'inner-analysis' experience in such a brief one IS remarkable. :) Thanks for sharing.

Thank you - I appreciate your kind words!
I've wanted to check out some of your work for a while as we seem to have many of the same friends...there is no better metaphor than space when it comes to seeking out and finding one's self...I love the idea of concocting constellations in a universe that is largely unexplored...we'll never find the ends of the universe unless we're willing to test the limits of our own resources...great work :)
