One year ago today
the course of my life was changed forever,
one year ago today
I remember sitting alone, in silence,
with a piece of my heart,
a memento of my memories,
an embodiment of a life-time of hopes, light, love, and tears,
a story that could not have been written by no other-
one year ago today I was holding in my hands my book,
‘Poet of the Sphere’.

What a year it has been!
What a time I have had!
I have seen things that I never dreamed.
I have been given gifts of insight,
I have done things I have never done before,
I have put my faith and my heart into the hands of others,
and I am so glad.

Things happen for a reason.
The things that have happened to me are a testament to me
that life is not just a series of random happenstances
strung together by commonalities-
life is guided, guarded, and fated to be what it is for a purpose.
We meet people and they dazzle us with fascination.
The people I have met, the friends that I have made,
the muses that I have fallen in love with,
have infused, overwhelmed, and flooded my life
with so much inspiration, energy, joy, excitement, fun, and wonder-
every day has been like an ever-changing and performing circus.

Having a book of my poems published by an amazing publisher
is one of the best things that will ever happen to me in my life.
Having people that I have never met before
tell me how amazing what I have imagined and written about is,
and saying what an achievement it is to do what I have done,
what others have only dreamed of doing,
makes me so happy, emotional, thoughtful,
about what it means to take every opportunity you are gifted
and to make the most of every moment of being alive.

I have learned that your life can be whatever you want it to be.
Sometimes you have to take a risk on things, on people,
jump from a mountain-top knowing that you will have wings on your back
that will glide you to a prosperous destiny-
just like the miracle that happened to me, one year ago today.

She’s like no one you’ve ever met,
and she spins my mind around-
every time I think of her
I feel like I am walking two feet off the ground.
She’s got the look of a greek goddess,
she’s got the heart of an Angel,
she’s got the spirit of a tigress,
and there is no one on Earth more beautiful.
She’s my friend, she’s my love,
she’s summer sun on hot sandy beaches that go one without end,
she’s someone who you would want to be with every hour of every day
because she has got more to give than anyone could possibly conceive of.

Everything that she says makes me smile,
every pout of her lips makes me want to kiss her mouth.
When I look into her beautiful eyes
I can see someone who is so joyful and special,
who always thinks about the feelings of others before herself.
She blesses everyone she meets with love and peace,
and I hope that she will forever be blessed with the same-
because I think she is the most gorgeous and amazing person
I have ever come into contact with,
and I feel so energized, positive, and inspired,
every time I see her face, every time I hear her name.

I have known her for a while now,
but who she is and who she always will be never changes.
I love her so much, because no matter when I see her
she is so full of life, and because she believes that faith in others
will win-out in the end, and that no matter the obsticles of life
that pop up in front of us sometimes
everything will work itself out one day.
She is someone who I have dreamed of meeting
face to face a million times,
and I believe that if you want something so badly,
if you are lucky, one day those dreams may actually come true-
as I hope mine will do so and soon,
so that I can say I love you, Salomay!

As the bell tolled ten,
as I stood at the twilight cloister between knowledge and faith,
staring up at a sculpture of a victorious St. Michael
standing over a defeated Devil,
inspiration came to me then and echoed through the space,
and I found myself there-after standing on another level.
The ground beneath me was like a river,
the rain did not stop falling for a second;
for an instant, I began to shiver;
when the chimes ended, I thought I heard my own inner-voice
say something, as if it were trying to respond.
There was no lightning-bolt that struck nearby,
but nevertheless I saw a flash of light
which I interpreted as being insight-
cloud and rain was all that I could see in the sky,
and even though it was morning it felt more like night.
I was transfixed by the university, by the nearby fountain,
by the stone spheres that were on the path before me,
and by the imposing cathedral-
even in this light everything looked so beautiful.
I wanted so much to understand what I was feeling,
but my heart could not tell me;
I wanted so much to share this inner-light with someone else,
but there was no one to be seen.
I stood for a few more minutes in silence,
and then I felt my feet and my legs
regain the knowledge of their function
and propel me on my path again.
I don’t think that I will ever forget that moment
outside Coventry Cathedral and Coventry University, in the rain,
as the bell tolled ten.
