Poem - Life’s Great Gulf

The poem “Life’s Great Gulf” is an anagrammatic treatment of my poem “Beauty’s Place, with the original inspired by the stream of lovely photos in my Tumblr feed.


Life’s Great Gulf

Stature confirming beauty’s place
knowing all is as it should be
contentment gained in the end
sadness spurned by reality

refine impressions at heart’s dismay
as predilections have their say
acknowledging those surely blessed
still admiration may persist

divine impression restrained to sight
embrace artifacts hewed from life
to admire nature’s consequence
belying what could follow next

separated by life’s great gulf
admire the breadth of results
surety set by the frame
stature confirms beauty’s place.
