By Don Iannone
pointing to the sky,
where the sun, moon, and stars live as one.
Up...some place above
wherever you are in life,
including some place you've never been
but have always wanted to go.
Up...a feeling you have
when the power of the universe
fills you beyond all comprehension.
Up...the only place you can go
when you hit bottom,
and think there is nowhere else to go.
Up...an illusion creating expectations
separating you from being one with the moment.
Up...another very small word
that means nothing but everything.
Up...the opposite of the end of a poem,
but certainly the way
you want people to feel
after reading it.
