    time moves ‘then’ to ‘now’ with such precision and stealth
    we hardly notice the passing from what went before into
    a few moments from then

    time is fluid, ever changing just seconds
    ago into unending ‘now’ ~
    moving on quickly in rapid succession, unceasing
    blending laughter, folding tears into cyclical eternities
    we cling to as we create memories
    re-living love’s sting in that burning kiss
    that feels like yesterday a lifetime ago

    time finds souls hanging suspended between
    heaven and earth, flying free in that space where
    ravages of nature cannot corrupt
    sweet and young, and as plump and ripe
    as love ever was when it began
    the moment time stood still
    and every living
    thing held its breath
    when he moved slow and deep inside
    the place I forever keep
    outside the reach
    of time

    loved it!

    ...the movement in and between time...i love how you
    used time...

    ...heaven and earth, flying free in that space where
    ravages of nature cannot corrupt
    sweet and young, and as plump and ripe
    as love ever was when it began


    love that part...

    You paint a vivid but subdued picture here- not an easy thing to do. I especially love the last 4 lines. Glad you shared.

    JAH Lives.
