Very interesting and good. I like the breakdown and the sound it makes as I read it. You should try this more often.

You said so much with few words andyou really nailed the definition in the most picturesque way.
Verna Cole Mitchell 03/19/11
Yes, you're outstanding as a poet, as well as a short story writer. You presented a wonderful message succinctly and beautifully.
Melanie Kerr 03/21/11
I enjoyed the poem. I liked the repetition of certain phrases and the progression of ideas.
Patricia Protzman03/22/11
Creative way to express the theme. Enjoyed.
Edmond Ng 03/22/11
A very creative approach on the topic! I like the way you add the verses into the poem to show what's past that extends into the infinity of eternity.
Noel Mitaxa 03/22/11
This is brilliant in its simplicity, its scope and its depth, because we can all identify with several of the allusive quotes you have sprinkled through the piece.
Since you requested red ink, a small dab would relate to your view of infinity or eternity as unending; when by definition it has no beginning either.
So easy to get our heads around that one - I don't think.

I wouldn't want to be a judge this week. I've read so many amazing entries, I have absolutely no idea how they choose the winners!

That to say that this is totally awesome. :)

I love how you tied all the eternal moments together with one ... LOVE. God's love is definitely the most powerful, the most eternal force in existence. Awesomely done!
