Nolo Segundo: “When I Brush Eternity”

When I Brush Eternity

Rare, rare it is,
yet sometimes
I can feel
God’s warm breath
stirring awake my
somnolent soul…
and for a moment
or two
I think I will know
the meaning of All,
but soon it recedes,
that sense of Infinity,
and I’m left hollow,
that taste of Eternity

Nolo Segundo, pen name of L.J. Carber, 74, has in his 8th decade become a published poet in 46 online/in-print literary journals in the U.S., U.K. Canada, Romania, and India; in 2020 a trade publisher released a book-length collection titled The Enormity Of Existence and in 2021 a 2nd book, Of Ether And Earth.
