the gift of small,still,held

Gift—

to see life shortened, distilled to droplet,

one small dribble in the ocean of time & humanity:

important as all drip-drops are—unique & part of the whole.

To see this, for a snip of a moment:

life span compressed,

decades before-after storyboarded, laid out,

choices, big&small, flattened.

Sigh of release,

to know finitude-mortality held with-in Eternity.

Today-Tomorrow’s to-do’s, anxieties, decisions… demoted, settled.

Questions of Being & Purpose, examinations of Meaning… stilled,

Robbed of power to disturb, frighten, unmoor.

Breath in, breath out.

This moment important & encompassed.

Rest
