Moments

Cherry blossom fallen

 

MOMENTS by Danielle Marchant

There are moments in life when everything shifts.
Like the earth tilting to a different degree on its axis.
Moments that catch your breath and steal your heart.
A glance between new lovers, a baby’s first cry,
cherry blossom floating like confetti from the sky.

There are moments in life when everything shifts.
Like the earth tilting to a different degree on its axis.
Moments that constrict your breath and break your heart.
A friend’s broken body,
An empty place at the table where a father once sat.

There are moments in life when everything shifts.
Like a kaleidoscope of colour.
Moments within moments.
Tiny fragments flowing in space and time,
Each of us making a picture with our multitude of moments.
