A GALLERY OF MY FAVE PROSE AND POETRY

Title: Evolution

Author: Gili Haimovich

Type/Genre: Fantasy

 

I am continually renewed, like evolution.

I don’t know if I want to stop,

or if I can,

but I am ashamed

at the possibility of gaining from the death of the dead.

For I should not appear even fleetingly glad in my need for renewal.

This has been done before on nature shows wound in reverse.

A wilted plant turns green then back into a seed.

Or maybe I am mistaken, and it’s just the opposite.
