Words Inspired by “The Consolation of Philosophy” by Boethius

What is a lifetime in the course of forever?

It is the blink of an eye

A shooting star passing by

It is the call of a lark

The pause after a question mark

It is the drop of a hat

A laugh in the midst of chitchat

It is the tear that drops from your chin

The pater noster said for a sin

What is a lifetime in the course of forever?

It is a snowflake melting on skin

A lullaby sung in B flat

A match being lit in the dark

It is an acquaintance saying goodbye
