Moments~by Paul Lenzi





Image by Alex Stoddard

nimble fingers
hold sure to
the future
a pillow of light
softly glowing
emitting a hum
cosmic music
from souls
yet unborn
fetal yearning
heard only by
hands of the
self-aware heart
all the waves
of descendants
conceived in one
uterine moment
the beginning
before any
notion of ends
before in those
capable palms
all that radiant
promise too hot
and too dear
spins at speed
burns the skin
of a sudden it
bursts into flame
turning every last
would have been
could have been
should have been
might have been
into a smokerise
of dissipate
ends in one
final combustible
moment no
lingering trace
of beginnings


From my book Ephemera
