Is This Eternity? (A Feature by Kathy Kroll)

Hello!  I hope everyone is doing okay.

Today we have a poem composed by a good friend of mine, Kathy Kroll.  I asked her to feature her piece on my blog, because I loved it so much.

And here it is. 🙂

Is this Eternity?

I contemplate the never-ending

Space of blue glass

Stretching endlessly

Towards sister sky.

Terror grips my throat

Even as I admire a beauty

As indefinable as a glittering

Ice sculpture whose edges soften,

So slightly, so softly.

And I ask myself…

Is this eternity?


Is this eternity?

How fearful to know

This black hole of endlessness.

How tormenting

To contemplate wildness

As seemingly unconquerable

Now as it was to the

Pilgrims who feared

Dropping over the earth’s edge.


Is this eternity?

Like the triad of Monterey pines

Whose feet root the cliff’s rocky exterior

I tremble at the taped edges

Of the Artist’s canvas.

My arms cradle the clouds’ softness

Seeking answers to the ageless question…


Is this eternity?

My skin glistens

As the ocean’s atomizer

Spumes and foams a response.

Fear not!

Eternity’s purpose will be revealed

As you soar overhead, effortlessly as a gull

As you dissolve into infinity’s cottony folds.


Thanks to Kathy for accepting my offer to feature!
