Depends On You
Within this universe,
Many are the random moments,
That never again will be,
Yet knowledge derives from past.

Stars travel and entwine,
Spin, dance, and combine.
Planets tend their children,
Alive on borrowed time.

Their tide delicately unravels,
A child's sand castle.
This unique product of imagination,
Lost for all of time.

Child of the morning star,
You inquire about the future.
What could be more perfect,
Than the tangents we follow?

You ask how things will be,
Through gulfs of space and time.
Yet there is little else,
On which truly you can depend...

Besides that special feeling,
When uniquely you know,
The next moment, my love,
Depends on you.

Richard,  I like this work, the human experience, and what we each derive from it is fascinatingly different and intriguing.

Richard -  The sentiments are so true here,  As people we are dependent on knowing that we are valued, that someone is there and cares.It is the nicer consequense of being alive and part of someones elses life.

Words alone cannot express the emotions and the passion that is described in this poem.Your heart glows like the stars in the night and you heart beats like the ocean waves comforting yet so calming and real. You my poetic friend have a heart of gold and that is the greatest treasure you can ever give to someone else Because it is unconditional. This poem is beyond beautiful .Keep writing my poetic friend, because you are so gifted and talented beyond the words that you write. You have been so blessed deep within the very core of your soul.Thank you for being you and more then anything thank you for sharing this poem with all of us.

Planets tend their children,
Alive on borrowed time.


Ain't it the truth..The status quo is an artifical delusion, at best. Forever changing. There's no beginning. This planet will someday lose it's electro magnetic engine and die..Then the sun will go red giant and boil off the waters and earth atmosphere.. It is all a fleeting reality for the whole human race. We gotta live in the moment and be happy, knowing that tragedy is in the wings. There was never a happy ending to a life...len

Who says you can't spin words? I have a pitchfork waiting for them if I ever find any...(good thing they dont exist!).

Great Imagery, Nice Job Rich.  This is very sweet and romantic, it reminds me of something from a good romance novel for some reason.


Love, Rin
