As a poet I make a great chef, so read this if you will with an open mind, don’t judge it as poetry, prose or the like, just take it as thoughts roaming out through the night.

All the best David Stevens


To Muse Is To Wonder.



by David Stevens


Darkness fills half the sky with night.

Sunlight flows over the rest so bright.

Clouds skitter drive hard.

Winds rustle the surface below.

Ocean surge tidal & alive.


The world revolves in its endless dance.

To drive the planet in a ballet of chance.

Life thrives on land and sea.

This world we see through telescopes afar

does not belong to you or me or even that far star.

It is a world existing, a world that’s free.

The life is nothing to you or me, its something bright

existing true, but in a foreign sky sometimes seen

By me or you.


Life in the cosmos waiting to be un-veiled.

A satellite passes swings by, ceaselessly searching,

hunting a foreign sky.

Recording the images not telling the lies.

Man will one day know and perhaps be wise.

Leave the world to grow as it wants.

One day it will give us a chance.


As life un-controlled develops anew,

perhaps it will come looking for me and you.

Who knows when or who knows why.

 At least for now we should only look up at the sky.

And just Muse…


For those that understand, thank you


For those that do not, I am sorry.


For those that don’t care, well so be it…


  To muse does not necessarily mean to make sense to all.

‘Beware the dark side’ (Yoda).
