"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Edytta Anna Wojnar


Persistence of Thinking

A thought thinks it remembers
the day of creation
all seven days or
seventeen billion years
depending on the way the universe
dense with matter
and with what matters
trapped the thought
with its theories

A thought wonders if it's unkind
to a higher power
to enter the dream
through a tunnel of light
during a pause on life
and it contemplates
what it had become
by not dying
