Hey brother! Well, I can easily see why it won - it's another transcendental masterpiece. I was hoping from your title that you'd use the "If" mechanic, so very nice indeed! As someone else just mentioned, it is ever-so-slightly dark but, as usual, you know exactly how to balance it. Ephemeral write - 10!

It’s like this: when the drifting sky turns its vital mirror and my living reflection disappears as death seals its vow across amazing again.

This poem is beautiful in that it brings out a bittersweet and calming emotion from within me as I read it. I love the fact that I could not read it fast enough, I did not want it to end and any sound going on around me was stifiled until I was finshed and I smiled.

A high compliment. Thank you!

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
