Moments in Passing

"Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways."

-Stephen Vincent Benét

Moments in Passing

Life is found underneath the fingernails
Inside that space between your foot and the floor
When your mind is racing for tomorrow
and your legs are heavy with last night
At the moment before you cross the street
when you're just standing there
the light that's meant for you
life is found

At the intrusion of desire-for-the-next-moment
life is found

Inside spaces we rarely look
In places we never thought were real
life is spilling over
without a hand to reap its bounty
So it wanders
It wonders why

In the months
lives spent
waiting for real love
to realize your love
Then -
in realizing you're love
life is found
