In a world of broken pieces

… where edges make their mark.

In a world of broken pieces,

where edges make their mark,

where the space between increases

til the differences are stark.


Where parts become fragmented

and the bits no longer fit.

Where patterns get augmented

and their unity is split.


In that space, in that place,

we face an existential threat,

a distant longing, we can trace

to lost connections; yet to be reset.


A continental drift, a landmark of sorts.

A sentimental shift, a hallmark of thoughts.

About the Creator

Tim Grace

A first impression has a lasting effect - it makes a notable difference. In a subtle way that’s who I am as a poet. A ‘first impression’ looking for the gentle ‘twist’ that draws attention to a novel observation.
