Transition - Poem by Justin Tallman

living in the negative
soon enough
the horizon will show clouds
in the right idea
all things
will come together
like a biblical

The pieces
of a puzzle
will display a picture
painted by Da Vinci
Mona Lisa

All smiling
with the smiles
that define
and erasing
in crayon

How the colors
bring out life
guiding to the ocean
the knife

we come together
and now
we hold our hands

we carry oceans
and now
we plan to stand

Singing out
our subtractions
so we can dig
and hope to add

    For some reason the stanza talking about Mona Lisa gave me a picture of you teaching a future generation... I cannot describe it. But good job! (Report) Reply
