These Moments

The time swirls around me

like a paper bag caught in the wind.

Seconds, like hours, stretch

expanding far enough

so that I can memorise

where the light is coming from

and what is illuminated;

the exact temperature and how

it feels on my skin;

and that severe look in your face

that I have come to know

and hold dear.

 

These moments,

swirling about me

and crashing into me —

I close my eyes, take a deep breathe

and dive in.
