slender moments

slender moments

note to self

suspended moments—
vivid, lucid

your Prius shoved
upside down dead bug
wheels spinning

he sauntered down
the path—heart
recognition flames

thrown from a
horse, floating in
air—time arrests

in less than a breath
beliefs, a card house
exposed, collapse

you are cast
into the big field
give over, soften

vivid, lucid—those
slender moments

thank you to Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer for “slender moments”

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—they may never turn into anything more or they might flower.
