Carpenter

Rating: 3.5

None of what we sense
or read, here and now,
will be for long.
Certain as light this moment has mutated into a shadow.
Everything in time will vanish.
Abandoning its form only to shape unto another.
Ceasing to be, perpetually metamorphosed into a brand, new being.
These words, too, will be conquered by silence.
The illusion of permanence.
Melancholy into song, hands to labor,
a residence in transience.
All of it, cities and masses,
the intangible matter.
The existential clay molded by our carpenter's hands

In my opinion, the title of this piece is somewhat deceiving. I understand what the writer is sdaying, I just didn't think it matched the title. GW62
