Laughable

Come, let us count the stars before the donning of dawn!
Hand in hand we unravel our dreams
Only to find infinity has
Neither beginning nor end

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    I like the urgency of the first line and then we realize what was the rush 🙂 Nicely done, Mary.
