The Edge of Eternity

The Edge of Eternity

What lies beyond

What I cannot see

Is it something I want

That will benefit me

Is it within reach

Or would I stray

Do I venture there

Or just stay away


There may be riches

Beyond compare

Dazzling treasures

Brighten and rare

Will I find wisdom

To enrich my mind

Answers to questions

I look to find


Will I work and strive

To make a life

Tired and weary

Facing trials and strife

Can knowledge be found

And courage too

Mysteries solved

And hearts be true



Thank You


My thanks to Mike mckbirdbks for the title that was inspired by this photo and the words in my hub Welcoming the Sunrise - Haiki poem

Thank you for the inspiration to write - again!

Hello MM, thank you for writing this inspiring poem. What lies ahead for me, I hope, is to delve into reading more of your work published here on hub pages. The photo on this page is so beautiful, and I am excited about seeing more. Also really interested in gleaning tips on photo restoration and working with negatives. Regards, snakeslane

Hi Lesley,

This part of your lovely poem made me think of our trials on earth...

"Will I work and strive

To make a life

Tired and weary

Facing trials and strife"

...and the rest of your poem made me think of what we will find in heaven when we get there someday.

Loved this! Thank you. Voted up and beautiful.

Movie Master 5 years ago from United Kingdom Author

Hello Peggy, 'the edge of eternity' intrigued me, was it heaven or earth, would there be trials or blessings, or maybe some of both....

Thank you for your comments and votes, they mean a great deal to me, best wishes Lesley.

MM, up, awesome, and interesting votes. I really do love this poem. Personally, I believe it is one of your best. The wonder of not knowing is a powerful emotion. Sometimes it can be good and at other times, it may be bad. Even so, it is always fun to wonder what lies ahead or dream about what we can't see.

Hi Mike, I googled Ketti Frings as I am not familiar with the author, what a fabulous title - it describes so much beauty in so few words. I noticed she also wrote a book titled, 'Hold back the dawn' I'm sure you're right she must have lived locally at some time in her life!

Lesley, What a charming, endearing, lilting tribute to the questions we ask and the answers we seek as we evolve through life! It's so inspiring the way that your total embrace of life comes through each and every bend in the challenging rapids through which each one of us navigates as a side effect of living.

Thank you for caring and sharing, voted up + all,
