a moment in time



What is
...a moment in time?
does it move?
(toward us like a gentle breeze...and pass)

...or do we have to bring it in?
(like a gaze from someone we love)

does it even...exist?
..or does it
......just support
whatever happens
...to be happening
.........................then
(like hands holding a coffin aloft)

How many moments go
.....unfelt
unused
.......untouched
?

until..we're gasping
....grasping
at the final ones floating

........away


One thing is certain about these elusive things..
called moments
.....it is the only way to access
your soul...
....your life




As The Virgin Queen with her dying words did sayeth..

"All my possessions.....for a..
.....moment in time"

RAW talent... that touches the soul... (and I mean that as the highest compliment)

I love to visit and read your blog every so often... (and did leave comments on a few older posts to acknowledge that)...

...and (forgive me for being sexist but) I always leave, though, wondering how you, of the male persuasion, could write such brilliant, soul-touchingly original poetic narratives (and magically match those photos/graphics to boot!)

another thing.

Does it take you alot of time to create/write?

I wonder because... while I believe I have within me a "writer"... my obligations in life just don't allow for the luxury of time... which I believe it would take to peel away those layers... "let go"... and create something... worthy...

I think I just had one of those moments while reading your work of literary art.

Thank you..you kind people..

TB (I always think tuberculosis..)
Poems aren't that time consuming..it's sort of a feeling I get..that I quickly type down and leave as is..unedited.
Stories are more consuming..that's why they're few and far between.
(I am almost finished one though)
