The world is living memory without thought
Music has an unlimited number of percussions
For us, there are all manner of repercussions
Precursors that like birdsong changes, and
Resonates into all spheres all individualities
Therein it attracts expands and contracts
So, it is we ask of our infant minds, why
Why does Pythagoras not answer us?
Why didn’t abacus calculate this for us?
Dark matter, energy, matter our solid matter.
Why does it, only amount to a measly 4%?
I guess that’s why the god particle, was sent.
It obliterates and yet it now immeasurably
Creates expands its music across the universe
Its true gravity is thought to be infinite
It is a singularity that began as a single note.
It sang the first OM, OM, OM…
If music be the food of love, play on.

Why are we here?
What is our purpose?
What is the meaning of life?
These are the questions that have plagued humanity since the dawn of time.
With the recent passing of Stephen Hawking, one of the most world-renowned physicists, known for his enormous contributions to quantum mechanics and general relativity, one has to only look to his astounding life of physical challenges and dedication to finding the answers to these questions. It begs us to continue to look for our own answers.
This anthology is dedicated to what gives life meaning and purpose personally. On a grander scale, what is the purpose of our existence as humanity? It is both deeply personal and widely introspective; yet it is also subjective.
Various poets share their verse, prose and poetry about what they perceive to be the meaning of life. ~ Brenda-Lee Ranta
