Poetry Pleases: Sometimes

Tony Ellis writes of those very special moments when the universe seems knowable.

A light like molten fire
Rushes through my veins
And a grin splits my face
So certain,
That I must know everything

There is nothing so fulfilling
As the white tassel of a carpet
Seen through the eyes of everything
Or a simple green pot
Sitting clean
On a perfect surface
