A Fleeting Moment Captured
(OctaTimbre in syllables)
A surprise, at least call first, then
A quick little drop visit here
An opportunity for a
Photo opp of grands and their folks
Since they were running their errands
Now I’ve just got to run my own
Errands tomorrow and get some
Copies to send to relatives
To see how quickly the young ones
Grow… while their parents, seem ageless

butterfly, where were you all
summer season, fading now
that I should spot you
the only one so far to
sup regally – monarch…
on the purple bush
ever fleeting quickly…there,

what day did you unfurl wet
wings to dry so you could fly?
Note: I have seen others, just not in my yard.
short piece: tau ku, pi ku, reverse tau ku;
polished surfaces see
fleeting glances of those who live
glass, mirrors, still life moving
surfaces polished – see?
air pressure signaling change
chicks in the nest squawk
sleep that was once easier
turns into sinus pain dread
counting the minutes
in and out of fleeting scenes
amid shifting dreams

to the whole from where they originated…
behind that ever seeing third eye
bits of light, electrical energy, brain blips –
visions seemingly so real, yet fleeting
like these words captured momentarily on paper

I feel like my New Year has started a week early
Having a later shift at ‘the new job’ meant no alarm needed to wake

My life line now travels on a different road…

Lines made in sugar frosting
Birthday wishes with some roses
Are for eating
Frosting made of sugar can draw you in…
