Of Gossamer Eclipses...



Away, away, the past is laid
In coffers firmly sealed
Afar, afar the future waits
Its mystery unrevealed
But now, but now one moment breathes
A gossamer eclipse
As future becomes present
For one gasp upon our lips
Then it recedes; a silk-spun waft
To time’s elusive crypt
Just as another, whisper-soft
Brushes our finger-tips…
Future to present to the past
The shadow of all three
Coalesce as they are cast
In breaths, to history

Janet Martin

Defining Present...
...inhaling future
exhaling past
