In Amber – Howl Davies

Do you ever think about
what is trapped in amber?
What were the last thoughts
of the dragonfly
or wasp
before they settled in
for eternity?
Did they feel fear?
Did they lead a full life?
Is the preservation to celebrate what they had done
or to ponder what they couldn’t –
a million years trapped in the trials
that are aught but fleeting obsession.

  1. Brief and profound and well-written; this is the sort of writing that makes great quotes:
    “Is the preservation to celebrate what they had done
    or to ponder what they couldn’t –
    a million years trapped in the trials
    that are aught but fleeting obsession.”
