Each moment that slips by unnoticed
Like clouds drifting,
Changing with each shift of wind
Carving shadows and shapes
For those who but search
For their creation.
I see formation of beauty
Even as these flakes gently fall
They are singular and alone,
Not mighty enough to block out
The glimpse of the far off sun
That pierces through at odd times,
Leaving me smiling
Waiting for more.
Hearts float in my minds eye
What I wish to see in the movement fragmented
Collapsing and coming together
Like two worlds colliding
And I stand for a spell and watch silently spellbound
By the slipping away
As warmth moves to cold
And I move my aching hands
Opening and closing the tired fingers
That for a moment forgot how to work,
As if by catching the sky I find it immovable,
So heavy I cannot carry it
So I leave with a memory
Light as air.
I was just spending time outside, awaiting a grand snow event tonight into tomorrow and my hands ache in the cold but it is just so lovely out, with the sun trying to peek through at me but the clouds build and keep it at bay. I can still close my eyes and dream.
