All the Little Pieces

How to rewind
broken,

the subtle shift of shard
and floor

laid between night’s
fall

and the morning’s first
glow. Take this

lantern. Set it
on the wall. Remove

the glass. Do not
light the candle.

Wait.

  1. Robert – just wow. Simply fascinating how you connect inanimate objects with life and universal meaning. I wish I could pull things like this out of my head and arrange them in words like you do. Wish you the best in 2017! πŸ™‚
