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.
