Do you ever let a day escape you?
You could reach out and grasp it as it slowly
fades, but, you don’t. Instead you wait
and slowly, slowly life passes you by.
Dappled sunlight moves across your legs
Turning to night like the midnight blue of
your satin skirt.
As morning comes again you rise
but hesitate as the mist holds you back.
and all the while life passes you by.
Your grey eyes, they watch and falter
quickly shielded by your lashes a hint of
emerald green revealed.
Overcast, the evening of your day wanes
and recognises the existence
of the pulsing flow of vitality under your skin.
Your vision starts to clear
You reach out…
And slowly seize the day.
