All These Things


Small talk on street corners, polite smiles and friendly hallos, goodbyes and shining glances complete every day.

Fire in our bellies alight with the touch and tender skin of a loved one, embraces at stations as life ebbs and flows, in and out and the hope to perhaps meet again or at least not be forgotten.

Bare short moments when anything is possible and our flight soars with eagles, the private seconds of laughing at ourselves in mirrors with twinkling eyes, standing peacock and proud.

Fear of loneliness hidden craftfully, chameleon and shy from this crazy world that turns and turns without hesitation or doubt in a blazing stride towards an unknown future.

All these things, tiny wonders and elegant graces make us part and gives us place.
