Beyond by Michael Keshigian

He felt himself in the gaze
of a more powerful one,
a force that hovered
somewhere above
the forest of shaded white pines 
that pricked the brightening sky.
He sensed judgment
from the elusive stars,
now hidden from view
and discerned scrutiny 
from the morning moon
after it was swallowed whole
by the sun which dispersed 
observations in focalized rays
regarding his life,
upon the backside of blue,
yet he continued to float
until the path diverged 
in opposite directions
well within his approaching view
and suddenly he hung suspended,
like a catatonic cloud,
awaiting a gust.

Michael Keshigian’s ninth poetry book, Dark Edges was recently released this September, 2014 by Flutter Press.  He has been widely published in numerous national and international journals and appeared as feature writer in over a dozen publications with 5 Pushcart Prize and 2 Best Of The Net nominations.
