Calling Calliope


The eloquent Calliope,

Muse of epic poetry,

Who whispered words

While Homer wrote

The Iliad and Odyssey,

Inspired both

The fool and sage

To put the pen

Upon the page

But can her stirring

Words be heard

In our computer

Driven age?


(Reworked from 2/17)



I dove into

the cosmic sea

and lost my own


now I’m in it

and it’s in me

a merging

has begun


I glimpsed thru

this epiphany

a cosmic view

and now I see

that everybody

else is me

for all there is

is one
