Six days beginning to end
and five mornings.
Four of 24
plus the last two of the first
and first 10 of the sixth…… One hundred and thirty two hours
132 hrs where memory only remembers breathing …. and.
I was impulsive in most things
why should this be different?
Emotion rushed forward, proclaimed wonderment
and proposed commitment.
a smile Mona Lisa would classify cryptic.
Two palms placed themselves on my cheeks
chestnut eyes demanded attention.
it’s just for now ….. enjoy it ”
– away is the traveller, away to home.
