Resplendence (a poem of inspiration)

Updated on December 30, 2015
Brilliance from within the darkness...
Brilliance from within the darkness...
The gifted of minds resplendent of the earth...
The gifted of minds resplendent of the earth...
Benevolence gifted to the common people by uncommon intelligence...
Benevolence gifted to the common people by uncommon intelligence...
Intelligence radiating, as if from the sky...captured by the chosen few...
Intelligence radiating, as if from the sky...captured by the chosen few...
Gifts from the brilliant minds and received by the masses...
Gifts from the brilliant minds and received by the masses...
Minds touched by the hand of God...those to share their wonders...
Minds touched by the hand of God...those to share their wonders...
The grandest scope of intelligence...that owned by humanity...
The grandest scope of intelligence...that owned by humanity...
The truest benefactor...that of divinity...
The truest benefactor...that of divinity...



Incandescence...brilliance...the very epitome,

That of the most gifted of all benevolent minds,

As Tesla, Einstein, Edison, and Bell...possessed,

Grandest thinkers, the rarest of those kinds.


Great inventiveness, seekers of the subjects,

Seemingly, thoughts as incomprehensible,

Baffling intelligence...beyond most common men,

This appearing to those as most sensible.


Tesla's alternating current, coils, and x-rays,

Have lasered him onto the spot...center stage,

Einstein and his "Theory of Relativity",

A Twin Paradox of time, in.the space age.


Edison...his phonograph, incandescent light,

An electrical inventiveness, all the rage... bright.

"Hello Mr.Bell, thanks for your nice telephone",

And for supporting the deaf, your work, well known.


So many more...their minds, all so gifted...

and in time, our grateful spirits have lifted,

Intelligence...seems such a wanting description...

Those words of a such a specified prescription.


Radiance in the star filled night...brightest orb,

A pulsing of light...its grandest proclamation,

Brains filled with such a well gifted knowledge,

That of a universal acclaim, in our adulation.


Firefly's lights...blink on and off...burn in the night,

Their brilliance... resplendence...all empowered of might.

Majestic, magnificent...finest minds of those so bold,

Projects futures, as from the stars, their presence to behold.

      We really have seen some brilliant minds through time. What would life be like if we didn't shine our light on the world?

      Beautiful piece, whonu.

      We watch the stars at night

      and the sun in the daylight

      We watch the moon and all it's magic

      and the planets in cycles so tragic

      The firefly's lite up less and less

      and why we can only guess

      Yet as long as there's whonunuwho

      these lights will shine on through
