A split second

A turn. A pulse,

a scent, a smile.

Dream fades

and shatters

for a while.

It is a second,

time to blink,

but it’s enough

for it to sink.

I saw you turn

I saw you smile

I may be grateful


it takes a while.

  1. Little moments that have profound impacts on us, even if it takes us a little while to acknowledge them. Beautiful in its brevity and message.
