A poetic response to the article The Future Belongs to You: Design it, then live it.
Such a poignantly touching poem Brian. As much as the world can be cruel, it also teaches us through pain & sorrow, enriches us through its beauty, and provides perspective in its majesty. Yes, even in the darkest moments, hope can spring eternal.
In Keys to Great Writing, the first chapter is “Economy: Make Every Word Count” and it cites a famous poem as an example. Your poem would serve as an equally effective example. Every line is just two words — two words! — yet those two words say so much. And every single word can stand alone with meaning or as an image. A beautiful and powerful interpretation of Vernon’s great article.
