How long can it last,
this hazy, auspicious moment?
Yes, this lazy, little moment
that glows with the softness
of sunlight passing through colored glass
or sea water on a clear day.
I bottle moments like these,
these innocuous, innocent snatches of time,
when I stop to let my heart swell,
while all else carries on
past the fleeting evening
and into the eternal, star-brushed night.
These bottles and jars sit on my shelves,
rusting over with amber nostalgia,
eventually falling to nothing but
sand and dust.
