The Imminence of Yesterday






The imminence of yesterday
Is ever-present where the Now
Teases our touch with gold and gray
And tests us with Time’s here and how

The spigot from whence moments drip
Rouses a hunger in our core
To realize how quick they slip
From fingertips to nevermore

And in this flow of come-and-go
And have-and-hold’s hello-good-bye
We learn to cherish soft and slow
The here-and-now's swift silver-sigh

…etched on an alabaster reel
Of oh so near yet far away
Where touch is keened with the appeal
And imminence of yesterday

Excited to have Melissa move home today until the New Year.
