ink on paper

Furrowed rows
of battle scarred
Brittle pages hold
what no one sees
Gone the way
of ink on paper
As scribes subscribe
to technologies.

In a race
to erase
a too deep footprint
Will we cast aside
a legacy?

Word Count: 40

    A superb use of forty fragile words penned here in virtual permanence.

    It would be a travesty if books were to ever be entirely replaced. Perfection in a digital realm subsumes the enchantment found in a physical object. Whether this may be deemed progressive is a debate for another time.

    Have a great week. Take care 🙂

    Namaste 🙂
