We are accepting your poetry now!


How sweet it is to yield
But to whom and to what?
There is nothing and no one
There is only the sweetness of yielding

How wonderful it is to love
But love whom and what?
There is nothing and no one
There is only Love.

Words like Peace and Happiness
Pale into nothing
When compared with the Void
With the Vastness, the Emptiness
The Infinite Sky.

I am a Solitary Bird flying
Forever in the Infinite Sky

Theodore Roethke

Rama, Dr Frederick Lenz, was awarded his Ph.D. in English Literature at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

His doctoral dissertation "The Evolution of Matter and Spirit in the Poetry of Theodore Roethke" was directed by the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Louis Simpson, Ph.D.

It is in this spirit that we have created this Poetry section, to encourage the appreciation and creation of words of beauty.

We encourage you, our readers, to contribute.
