Years Are Magnifying Glass - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

the years are
magnifying glass

throw the years
talents, throw
the years paintings
poems, written works
a van gogh, an emily,
a leonardo, a cave painting
the most unknown works

the years would come back
with a vision whether the works
are of class, taste and great
to hold onto for posterity

    Beauty rises from the rubbish-heaps of humanity, and the years do not condemn! Bravo. Ivan (Report) Reply
