Notes on the Dreams of Dust

Louis is editorial administrator at and founder of Destiny Poets and in his spare time is a civic, community, political activist, blogger and general nuisance to the status quo!
 Louis Kasatkin

We gaze upon ourselves
as we die each day
the slow death of days,
the long days
of circumspection
unspoken remorse;
cryptic clues
to understanding
the vastness of
the futility of all
endeavour committed
so naively to an
enterprise of certain failure;
for some of us at least
the day is now over,
the dust settled.


  1. Love this poem! Vast in its scope, yet brief in words!

  2. Many thanks for your appreciation.

  3. Very beautiful way of putting the existentialist questions!And yes,vast in scope.
    Kasatkin style!
