Amorous Archaeology: Poetry By Diane Maietta

When you are searching for your purpose to help define greater meaning in your life, choose to become an artist of life’s joys and lead with the inspiration that evolves humanity to higher ground.

 Amorous Archaeology

 If the Universe is a finite land,

Then by the mere right of one’s birth

Love’s suspended in animate sand.

But tell me, who controls the hour-glass

If it’s neither broken nor made…

Are we always attending the mass?

Is there emotional evolution, 

And if so, is Creation the

Nucleus of its own revolutions?

Are we intrinsic essence of humankind

With singularity voided;

Are we the edgeless edges of some master-mind?

If it’s true life is insurmountable,

The sky’s a terminal mirror—

The Spirit’s allure is redoubtable…

Maybe judgment day is everyday…

Maybe by actions, we always

Are subconsciously kneeling to pray.
