How Wafer Thin
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
 
How wafer thin the thing we call our world!
No more than momentary, it extends
Indefinitely, even now pretends
Eternal ages; here a view unfurled
Defies impermanence; a bird that's whirled
Against the sky of its own whim makes bends;
Though falling short, sufficiently ascends
The sun; a singer's final note is hurled
Against its doom; and all is every way
Lost; ruins are but broken promises,
Which mended, fail; though not just yet, they will;
And tried and tested, all reality
Is not; but coming days the tender kiss
Of hope each feels; confirms there's meaning still.
