Leonard Nimoy, the Poet

Time has stopped.
A minute is still a minute.
An hour is still an hour.
And yet,
The past and the future
Hang in perfect balance.
All focused on the present.
A sweet flow of excitement
Warms me.
You are near.

We all remember Leonard Nimoy as Mr Spock on the tv series Star Trek. But very few know that he was a poet too. All Poetry appearing here was written by him.
Leonard Nimoy
AKA Leonard Simon Nimoy

Star Trek icon Leonard Nimoy continually fought back tears on the set of the sci-fi franchise's new movie - because he couldn't help but recall old pals who have passed away and former cast mates. The original Mr. Spock reprises his unemotional Vulcan role in the new J.J. Abrams ' film and admits he was all emotion as he watched characters from the beloved 1960s Star Trek TV series meeting for the first time in the new prequel.

In my heart
Is the seed of the tree
Which will be me.
Nourished by understanding
Warmed by friends
Fed by loved ones
Matured by wisdom
Tempered by tears

I am convinced 
That if all mankind
Could only gather together
In one circle
Arms around each other's shoulders
And dance, laugh and cry
      Then much
           of the tension and burden
                       of life
           Would fall away
In the knowledge that
We are all children
Needing and wanting
Each other's
Comfort and
We are all children
Searching for love

I am an incurable romantic
I believe in hope, dreams and decency

     I believe in love,
     Tenderness and kindness.

I believe in mankind.

     I believe in goodness,
     Mercy and charity
     I believe in a universal spirit
     I believe in casting bread
     Upon the waters.

          I am awed by the snow-capped mountains
          By the vastness of oceans.

               I am moved by a couple
               Of any age – holding hands
               As they walk through city streets.

          A living creature in pain
          Makes me shudder with sorrow
          A seagull’s cry fills me
          With a sense of mystery.

               A river or stream
               Can move me to tears
               A lake nestling in a valley
               Can bring me peace.

I wish for all mankind
The sweet simple joy
That we have found together.

I know that it will be.
And we shall celebrate
We shall taste the wine
And the fruit.

Celebrate the sunset and the sunrise
              the cold and the warmth
              the sounds and the silences
              the voices of the children.

Celebrate the dreams and hopes
Which have filled the souls of
All decent men and women.

              We shall lift our glasses and toast
              With tears of joy.
