An Event of Getting Older by Peter Menkin

by Peter Menkin  
1/18/2009 / Poetry

I had a dream about getting older, and mostly about being young...

Once in a while my dreams are vivid, and I can remember them. Now I am older, not too old, but still youth is gone at my age. I dreamt about youth, and I thought about God, and I remembered and looked towards life everlasting. A poem.

By Peter Menkin

The surprising thing about

the abrupt recognizeable

landmarks of our lives comes

with speed; please quicken me

to fulfill, enriching for all

around me. I recall the dream--

my youth speaks: youth, your moments

remain in a comraderie. Remain

remain, oh, friendship with

which I sleep fill me in good.

About this I talk with God, He

absorbs me with an embrace

and I know You Christ
are wisdom timeless.

In a dream there comes an angel.

Behold, an angel of the Lord: say yes.

This is on the bones
, in marrow

by grace the beauty brings

memorable tidings of youth,

gifts of life.

Alas, grasping this promise of time

brings me to know resurrection is sure.

I wanted it, this youth, to last forever.

My mind declares, I know there is more.

Here, let us receive the bounded

and unbounded changes of another birth.

Renewal is the season, electric. Stay

awake for we know not when. Soon.

See you there then, again. Singing.
