In the blink of an eye

What
metaphysical thing plays
out in that

split

second

between your smile

and being stolen
away

by an umbrella
on the wind

to a life less
lived?

An unprincipled principle?
Irregular regularity?

i do not know; we cannot know…

perhaps
you do,
now

  1. So right, as so much can take place in a split second, millisecond even, bb, whatever the cause it’s the difference between ‘what could’ to ‘what is’ and so often leaves us wishing for the ability to turn back the clock and restart the process…. oh pretty please life?…. 😀 xPenx

  2. Oh, such longing here today, and so very beautifully put. I find myself with an urge to grasp the umbrella back and put it on its seed head, and have everything as it was before…

  3. Beautifully expressed. Things can alter in a milisecond. There is a poignant note to this that is tugging at my heart. Very well put together. Thank you for this!

  4. What metaphysical thing? Shock and or surprise – followed close behind by philosophers of the analytic type such as myself with an ourable or ‘we,us,andthemable’ sense of chaos driven principles of perfectly explainable and permutable poignancies 🙂
