Catching Moments In Sailing Sheets

image0 2

Days quickly fade
Rolling by
Without much pause
Or reflection 

Drifting into the night
Unmarked
Or unseen
Without attention 

Amongst the whirlwinds
Of routine
Of ordinary efforts
And daily undertakings 

There’s something
To be noticed
At 6am
During bed making 

With a gentle lift
And a flick
Effortlessly floating
The sheets go sailing 

Into the beyond
With hopes
Of a new day
Gently cascading 

For a moment
Time stands still
Holding space
For a breath or two 

Then it slowly falls
Finding new ground
Resting softly
Anew
