IN THE MOMENT

in response to, and with lines from Irfaan Ihsan Jaffer’s poem “Forever” at iithinks

In the beginning was the silence of space
That silence held a moment of pressure and tension

In the beginning is the silence of space
That silence holds a moment of pressure and tension

I watch you raise your lips
One word from you and it exploded into light

I hope you know
Your gorgeous smile 
Is heaven’s gift… 
That very moment is still unfolding

As without, so within

Each morning, I walk in your garden
Take my hand and follow me 
There’s a secret place 

Each morning, I inhale your fragrance
A mercy
Sent down to rescue me

Each morning, I bear witness to the dawn
Each morning, the dawn bears witness to the still-unfolding moment
All I see is you

As without, so within
All I see is you

    • Thank you, Cindy! I hope you are keeping well. After writing the lines about walking in a secret garden, I was browsing the wonder-filled glass photos on your page…your descriptions of them are so apt, and they felt right in harmony with the space I’m in today. Blessings!
