Ode to God – [Despina Karvounis (Guest poet)]


When surrealism ceases to exist, and

Crippling emotions are holding a mind captive,

All arguments being exhausted,

A void opens grand, ready to swallow me and me alone,

A tiny atom in the vastness of the Universe rotating fast,

In a vertigo of crowded solitude, on my own axis,

I am, I stand alone.


My struggle has been with you, oh God.

Seas of despair already filled and deserts are

Holding secrets yet, of truths proclaimed.

I spread my soul into an embrace striving to hold

Everyone and everything close, your creation

Is my quest, filling my heart with awe and reverence.

My void is starting to take form,

My swaying in the abyss, a purpose.


It is not until I reach in, within, that I find you.

I strive to become as you in order to understand

Your wisdom, I submit my pride and stubbornness,

A solid ground unfolds underneath my feet,

My wings transform into laboring hands, yet

The vastness in my Universe remains filled with all

Things made by word, clay, breath, and love all you.


“It is not until I reach, within, that I find you.” Certainly, this is the perfect message on this celebration of rising, to be shared with.  Rise… Rise to within. 


About Britton

It's a chattering of an eccentric who often can't control his vagrant thoughts while he is wandering around in search of the unknown. Well, it seems like, this world is an asylum N it invites each N everyone to have a stroll through this asylum. Further, for me it's a madylum :) Humiliating mockeries all around, crushing anguish within, boring day-to-day chores.... oh! He has to wade through all these. :-( N the weary traveler should plod on. No matter what.
