For National Poetry Month 2012 #3


Think not

O heart heavy

with time’s solace of tears.

For the day draws to its close,

and as fitting,

so does life itself.

      This is really gorgeous Audrey. When I see works like yours, it reminds of a quote of Nietzsche's 'I want to convey in a sentence what other philosophers conveyed in a book'. paraphrasing... Beautiful - voted such John
