What is falter?
What is step?

What is time?
What is short?
What is long?
What is sport?

What is pride?
What is regret?
What is sight?
What is connect?

What is friend?
What is stranger?
What is safe?
What is danger?

The idea originally was to answer the questions in rhyme beside the questions but then it sort of flowed out with the answers in the questions (or maybe implied between the lines). I was inspired by the micropoem I read below (hers is better)… 👇

“What are heavy? sea-sand and sorrow:
What are brief? today and tomorrow:
What are frail? Spring blossoms and youth:
What are deep ? the ocean and truth.” ~ Christina Rossetti
