Cosmic Radiance by Jeff Flesch

I walk along the forest floor, watching

as the mysteries pour forth

blooming evergreen weeds, struggling up

through the ground

looking to see if anyone’s around

they always wink at me

relating a resilience

and a broad-spectrum playfulness

hidden

inside the stars heavens, a mirror

takes two seconds more

to notice

in the dew

lingering on a leaf, just there

it sparkles like diamonds

and is radiant, containing the entire cosmic

requirement

of love, my love of you

and the love I feel for everyone and everything in view

Can you see it too?

    Jeff’s poetry inspires the reader to step out in nature and seek the similarities. Strength, resilience, and beauty is abundant and hope stems in the hearts of those who seek comfort. If we view everything as one, then we are respecting the cosmic balance. There are miracles all around us and love blooms in the hearts of those who wish to see them. Let our eyes and vision reflect the goodness of the world.
    Congratulations Jeff!
