"In the Moment"
Owl Creek School
As I stand here, I feel the breeze
Slither down my spine
My hair flowing with the wind
Birds chirping, bees buzz
It’s almost as if time has stopped
A single moment frozen
A dog’s mouth open ready to catch a Frisbee
A boy’s ice cream drip, drip, dripping
But the drip hangs suspended in mid air
Leaves hang swirling on the breeze
And, for a moment the breath of the world is held
What happens next?
What happened right before?
I don’t care.
I’m in the moment.
