|| This poem seems to deny ephemera, yet isn't it within the nugatory that the noetic lies?
|| (surprised) Huh? What planet are you from?
|| I think Carlos is trying to say that many things are beyond our understanding.
|| (laughing). Look: lots ah people around the world are starving. Why are you are chatting about poetry?
|| Well, for me poetry of way of remembering the things that make life worth living.
|| Of course, it is good try to make the world better. However, don't disparage poetry!
|| (cynically). Argh, this talk is useless! I think I will "make the world better" by drinking a nice cold beer!
What we are today
is but a fraction of what we could be
Our hearts have more possibilities
than we've dared to see
We are flickering candles
in a star-studded night
The illumination we now produce
could be infinitely more bright
We are meant to shimmer strongly
& shine with luminosity!
Why tinker with ephemera
when there are countless discoveries?
Rejoice as swarming moths
against eternity's candlelight!
Through conscious intention
be radiant & bright
even when it seems like night
