Beyond – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photo: Looking east, out over the Blackwood River at a glorious dawn.

“What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?” E.M. Forster


Sometimes words cannot speak,
and only sounds unformed will
come, followed by a silence that
speaks loudly through the eyes of
something beyond the constraints
of beauty, pointing past the moment,
to beyond the veil of time, to life in
all its fragility reaching out to us
with an ecstasy of awe.
