Time for Thought

Before the time when time began
before the very thought of man,
within a void where there was nought
was essence of a single thought.

From whence it came there's none can tell
bred of void or heaven or hell,
but as that thought began to grow
that single thought became a flow.

And thus remained for eons of time,
now time was there to draw the line
the tide of thought spread out its seed,
now seeking to fulfil its need

Primeval need to find a place
where it could sample more than space,
where it could find a way to stand
and hold emotions in its hand.

As ages past,the seed now sown
developed into thought's true home
and thought absorbed in lifeís new shell,
still washed in void and heaven and hell.

The human race must understand
that thought alone can rule this land,
no matter how we choose to play
primordial thought directs the way.

So void, or heaven, or even hell,
its up to you to cast the spell.
Donít blame no other for the way
you feel about the world today.

Just collect your thoughts,with them unite,
and when agreed prepare to fight.
For what you think, is how you play,
and how you spend your time each day!

Ivor G Davies

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

My Thought
What can you say about Ivor Davies? He's great, a natural, unusual, smart, extremely talented and never writes anything that isn't fascinating.

If he has a downfall, I am thinking that he finds it difficult in accepting compliments bestowed upon him.

Now we will await and see if he can merely reply if he wishes to reply that is, with two words, "Thank You" and just let it go....

and just let it go.......?
Thank you one and all who read
I'm glad if you can see
A little in my poetry
that forms a part of me.

Thanks to those who feel they know
the poet of my mind
and further thanks to those who post
some comments that are kind.

But thank you too for those who write
and criticize my rhymes
for you my friends help me to see
more meaning in my lines.

The power of words delivered thus
can sometimes go astray
so thank you if you gather them
and send them the right way.

And thank you JetfireK as well
for lifting me above
to the place I aim to make my stand,
for poetry's my love.

A simple thank you never is
enough to show we care
So Bea and Jon and Jet as well
thank God that you're all there!
