Legacy by Gregory Gunn

Provide us a poem
of imprudence for every stanza
of diplomacy we articulated
for intrinsically it is our birthright.
Permit us to ascend to celestial
loftiness where lunar lungs
inflate with platinum & silver
as solar orifices draw in
lustrous, bejewelled gold.

And as we descend toward
the terrestrial globe again,
allow us to hold in high esteem
the rubicund facade of its
supreme ruler as all life
agitates, circumvents us
like a simmering ocean.

Let us imbibe & chortle
& embrace the dissolute,
adore each other faithfully,
as we saunter en route
to our demise.
Let us compose
& capture the holy world,
leave this for our beloved offspring
as remnants by which they
will attach importance to,
recognise us & be thankful.

  1. Born in Windsor, Ontario in 1960, Gregory Wm. Gunn was raised in a few small towns throughout the province until finally settling in London. A graduate of Fanshawe College as an Electronics Technician in 1982, Mr. Gunn began writing earnestly during this academic tenure there, and has continued doing so ever since. He is mainly passionate about poetry. He has compiled seven full collections and has had several poems published in:

    Subterranean Blue Poetry, Yes Poetry, Cyclamens & Swords, The Toronto Quarterly, Ascent Aspirations, Carcinogenic, Steel Toe Review, Covalence, Shangri-La Shack, Tea With George, 20 X 20 Magazine, Exercise Bowler, Corium, Lines and Stars, Blue Lake Review, Forty Ounce Bachelors, The Light Ekphrastic, Side B Magazine, Burning Wood, Crack the Spine, and others.

  2. Inspiring. We can be a captive in this life that agitates and circumvents us like a simmering ocean or we can catch the waves and capture this life, adore each other faithfully and leave thisas the legacy for our children.
