Slowed Down

It feels clocks have been abandoned

Faces buried in the untimely silence

Many new visitors other than humans

An invitation sent to them by someone

The world is wrapped in a different mood

No one toils during an elongated pause

A generation moves at a snail’s pace

Uncertain bridges between moments

  1. I absolutely love this piece. It is very evocative and raw to the core.

    “A generation moves at a snail’s pace
    Uncertain bridges between moments”

    These final two lines are a gut-punch, because I feel like it’s describing what is going on in the world now. Very accurate to the uncertainty between time. What a great description! This is an excellent piece with well-crafted figurative imagery. As always, I have enjoyed your work. 🙂
