Moments

moments.jpg

a moment to collect these fragments of time

by chance, a moment to turn it inside out

if only for a moment

 

scaffolds of despair layered under a rain-kissed sky

imaginary temples to honor seclusion beneath a nectarine sun

as the wolf, beaten, howls at the door

for a moment

 

a woman, more than blood and bone, seeks truth

aspirations drawn out on willowy planks

wobble in this moment

 

keenly aware as it all tumbles down

she delights in destruction

as the wolf becomes her faithful companion

if only for a moment

 

a moment to skim these fragments of time

by chance, a moment to turn it inside out

moment by moment by moment
