1. NIHIL FIX EX NIHILO

NIHIL FIT EX NIHILO

A forgotten phrase I fear,

Like a declaration made in confidence

When no one is willing to hear.

 

It is a rose, clothed in thorns almighty

Such courage that a warrior would covet—

Proclaiming with pride that it started

As a seedling that thought nothing of it.

 

Like a deadly disease on a spectrum

Widespread—it could never be cured

To come from a nonchalant cough—

“It’s just a cold,” the lady assured.

 

A story I cannot stop reading

With a plot so immersive and tight,

From an author that just had the notion

To begin, “On a dark, stormy night…”

 

What does all this mean to say:

A flower, a virus, a book?

Oh reader, my point is quite simple:

You just need the right way to look.

 

NIHIL FIT EX NIHILO—

Its language though the years did not make it.

It means, “Out of nothing comes nothing.”

How far are we able to take it?
