Caregiver

I’ve glued together hours
from the frayed edges of days,
a flash of pinking east
a smudge of faded west:
interspersed, random bits of time
with kinescopic flicker.

God blew a breath
and cleaned the dust
off this looping snippet
of life.
Then I realized
those hazy specks
were people.

  1. Beautiful and sad…beautifully sad? Brings me so close I almost cry…and I most definitely feel for you. (Sorry, I’ve been bad about blog-reading lately…not uncommon for me…so I must have missed other great ones like this. I’ll have to go back and find them).
