One Poem by Geoffrey Aitken


the universe
remains unread
by earth’s great minds
though its music
and elusive songs
mesmerize from remote corners
seducing scientific entrepreneurs
to continue lifelong searches
for undiscovered quotients
while the poet
awaits that chance meeting
with eternal fire
to summon word spell baptismals
for aching readers
conjuring possibility
to unlock ancestral human delight
while weaving dreams and rhapsody
to fill the cosmos
so that astronomers may never rest


Geoffrey Aitken is regarded as an emerging poet in his home State of South Australia and writes pithy poetry (after a time of poor mentals). He does not dwell. He is older. Recently published in “Flashes of Brilliance” (US x 2), “Aesthetica” (UK).
