Splendid and Sublime

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

How could time elapse
After we inevitably collapse
Into nothing?

I ask
To get a grasp on the questions I bring

And so forth we spring

Like a sapling
From nothing

Feeling
Love when it’s touching
The skyline above

Adapt to blend

Cause pretendin’
To be spendin’ time
Is too damn splendid and sublime

    I’m totally lost, but it’s lovely all the same, especially the last stanza.
