    Uncanny poem, I love it! You have one layer on top of another over another, brilliant poem! I too have written about nothing in some of my poems, nothing has great depth doesn't it? Thank you, RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Philosophical work...

    Are all part of this existence......which may be an illusion (Report) Reply
