We Lose Sight of the Splendor

*****

It’s always by a thousand cuts. A half-truth, an unspoken word, an overlooked injustice; they float by us like falling leaves. We ignore them, become blind to them. But we don’t forget them, and as the years pass, we lose sight of the splendor of ordinary days.

~ Jeff High, The Splendor of Ordinary Days

Among us, poets are not paid. The poet/editor of this website, being physically disabled, lives at a fraction of her nation’s poverty level and is presently homeless. Become one of her three thousand subscribing readers at: https://timeless classics.wordpress.com, and a patron at: https://www.gofundme.com/are-you-a-patron-of-the-arts
