    dotsDeath of a Momentdots

    How suddenly a moment dies.
    How final--
    like a stillbirth--
    so rarely mourned,
    so rarely treasured.
    Infinity makes a moment seem
    as insignificant as I feel
    amongst the billions on this earth.
    Like a trembling bird a moment dies.
    One jerk of a hand
    sweeps each moment away
    Like a blackboard--
    Forever erased.

      This is a wonderful read. I love how you kept it so succinct. I once wrote a peace that was similar and it was probably 3 times as long.
    This is one of those poems that I wish I could get the world to read. All to often we as a society rush through life and we never stop and look around. Thanks for sharing this!

      Amazing. . . so what happened with all of these other comments? I thought it was better than just the few words written here. . . you've really captured something hauntingly beautiful here. The only thing I would change would be to put a comma between "trembling bird" and "the moment", just so that it will be grammatical. Good write!

      Wow... reminds me of that Steven King movie... The Langoliers... Today dies when it becomes yesterday, and the Langoliers follow behind, consuming all the discarded yesterdays. "like a blackboard, forever erased" very powerful image, hun. Btw.... dumplin, pumpkin, punkin.... WHICH IS IT ALREADY!?!?!?!??! Lol... just kidding! Great write. 5 & faves list for sure. <><

      This is wonderful. And I love your last line. Love how you touch upon those things of beauty that most people never stop to think about, let alone appreciate.

      Actually my brother calls me punkin, so they're both right.

      Wonderful. The few moments that it took to read this were really "treasured"
