This requires a second reading to understand all the nuances between nothing and something. I really enjoyed the way you used word on word to evoke thoughts in the reader's mind. My favorite line referred to the dirt we're made of.
Very thought-provoking. I loved how you captured how life is so busy, so constantly changing and fragile. It contrasted so well with the security God offers. Thank you for such a powerful and beautiful piece.

I too had to read this more than once and grapple with its meaning. There is a lot of depth here to search out. Very descriptive writing.
Thanks for your comments ! I welcome them and though poems are supposed to leave some pondering, I do like to have my readers at least connect in some way. So, I will take the comments about having to read it over in mind because. I don't want to be so abscure that reading isn't enjoyable. So thanks for letting me know. I appreciate that.

Thank you for this complex poem. Like others, I had to read it over again to understand the 'nothings' and 'somethings'. Very thought provoking.

Lots of thoughts to digest in this interesting poem. It is worth the second read--and that's a compliment to you. I expect this to be on the EC list.

Even though I didn't understand everything on my first read, I felt it in my gut - something has me near tears and I don't know why. I know there is a lot more here than I'm seeing because it WORKS. I hope I made sense!
