Humble Pie

the child counts
the blackbirds
such flighty things
the offered gift
now hollow


  1. And you have just summed-up a key concept of Schopenhauer's philosophy in 5 lines!

    Can't think on this too long or I'll never get that nursery rhyme tune out of my head. ; )

  2. You once mentioned Schopenhauer's philosophy during a read of another poem I wrote... I hope I'm not becoming(?) a pessimist.

    Hmmm. Like you, I can't think too long. My eyes are spinning. It will take me much time to read up on something I seem to gravitate toward instinctively.

    Thanks! LOL.
