Ephemera

The light descending
From the skies lets its magic
Residues shimmer,

And land an instant,
Before it collects them back,
And fades out of sight.

        My pleasure! The quality vs quantity argument. Then then is the “Diana attention span” equation ๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. Haha I am also a familiar of the attention span dilemma ^^ I need the works I read to keep me immersed from the first to the last words or I just get back exploring to my own worlds ^^

            Exactly! It’s quite hard to retrain one’s mind to patiently ponder through words when your own inner thoughts start mumbling. Now pardon me,I’m going to read you some more ๐Ÿ˜Œ
