Poetry from Brianna Dawn.

smaller than a single letter

to think our lives
barely even haunt a speck of dust
on the bookshelf of the universe
we measure no longer than a syllable,
or even as letters strung together
in the shortest of verses,
our years not even taking
a nanosecond to read
barely even a hint or significant dent
in the crown of existence’s mind
in the future will something ever
take a look at the tiny little book
we wrote of ourselves, or will we
remain unread, long dead on
some deity’s bookshelves
for what is left of time?

      I took on the challenge of doing the daily prompts so that I could hopefully stretch and expand from the themes I usually write about. So far it’s been a great experience. I wish you luck in your writing adventures. šŸ™‚

        You are very kind, thank you, to leave a comment saying what it does for me. I agree with you about the pure value of the daily prompts. Writing is a good thing, I think, regardless… but interacting with the WordPress community is a good experience.
