Thoughts Of The Day

Avatar Author: Tad Winslow "If you don't work nothing will." Maya Angelou Read Bio

Imagine if life

Is like infinite instances

Coming from nothing

Inevitably becoming nothing

At a constant rate

It’s circular— life reinitiates

Once spread dead

Now a lively concentrate

Then again

All vision dilutes back

To inanimate eyes— death’s cataract.

    I like this kind of poetic prose, it’s tricky to get right but you handle it well here – for me, it gets better as it goes on, and once you reach the ‘lively vs. dead’ contrasts in the last couple of lines it’s a really thoughtful piece…

    Well done – MH :)
