Moment-strings



 Photo

Once upon a time they seemed, it seemed
Bold hindrance twixt present and future-dream

Now these diamonds, strung into the mist
Flaunt their transience dissolved when kissed

How is it that I, when I was young
Pranced over their worth, soft, silver-strung

Now, foolishly though I grope and I reach
All I can touch is the lessons they teach
