Free Verse...

The Cosmos 
Man’s mind spins with uncertainty
of the myths around one’s soul
questions of the ageless universe and its
solar system of depth beyond man's eye
Penetrating ancient books of repeated lists
of misunderstood statements from minds
that search to reveal what is hidden within
black galaxy of stars and their rotating planets 
Such searching remain with questions
for the quest to reveal has gone on for
thousand of years with the evolution of man
and the creatures who inhabit earth with him - 
He will continue to search for answers
as to the existence of the Cosmos 
- Rhoda Galgiani
Free Verse Poetry Form has no rhyme, no special line length or no special pattern
It sounds like natural speech - It tells a story or paints a picture - It uses carefully chosen words to describe experiences or feelings - It is written like a poem and not like a paragraph
It must make sense to the reader…rg

Much to ponder about in this one Rhoda. I really like the opening lines. Keep up the good writing my friend.

Thank you Karen for the comment. I am really impressed with the new TV show entitled 'Cosmos' - maybe you have seen it?...rg

Love the free verse, Rhoda. Rhyming poetry is a good form, but poetry does not always have to rhyme. You have displayed a question that many people ponder on, or even drive themselves crazy over. Nice poem. Thanks for sharing. -MJ

Quite interesting that I should read this poem at this time, having just had a discussion with my son about the magnitude of the Universe and how many light years the planets are away from us and how long it would take to get to some they have just now discovered due to more powerful telescopes, hundreds of thousands of years. I loved your poem describing how people will ponder unable to explain how it all came to be. Your use of free verse lends itself to this theme very well. Thank you for sharing your awesome talent.
Love, Charlene

Thank you Maurice - I do my best expression when writing 'free verse'. The questions about the universe will continue forever. Look into the depths of the sky and you will know why - for it is just too deep for any human beings understanding...rg

Charlene - I was very impressed with the new TV show 'Cosmos'. The beautiy of the universe is overwhelming - I wish I could understand its conception better than I do. Yes, people will ponder the universe' birth - forever!...rg
