~ A Vase Without A Base ~

~ A Vase Without A Base ~

A Poem by waking-life

...false value...

Empty Vessel...

Lacking Knowledge. 


But Barren. 

Lacking A Core.

A Piece.. of Forgotten Artistry. 


 Porcelain of Vanity.

oh the meat of this is rich and savory as it turns its words inside out to reveal that beauty without subsrance is hollow~ so hollow

empty vessel indeed, like a child who doesn't experience education in their lifetime. very beautiful.

Even the most beautiful vase is nothing if it can not be shown, excellent piece of poetry my friend.

The imagery here is beautifully wrapped around the stunning thought that such a so called piece of forgotten artistry is not so much forgotten but silent....lost in myriad ways - I love this! Vanity is something so noticed but not at the same time!

Simple but yet it screams a deeper meaning another job well done :D
