Niches in time

Silently by the roadside.
Hold time by your fingertips.
Watch it flow. Watch it hold still.
time is nervous. Time has to pass.
Moments linger – O, so heavily they linger.
They want you to notice.

Hold. Pause.
So that, in another time, under a similar moon –
you may remember
and recover –
this moment –
this blissful moment –
that connects the world to you.

Pause. Ask.
What is your life to you –
Or don’t.
Let the winds carry you
to those spaces
where music and words
stand in reverence
to the magnanimity
of comfortable silences.

Pause. Life exists in the niches of time you carve out.
