timelessly touching time
then gone
in an instant
and present

  1. I like this poem. You packed these few words with a lot of meaning and a lot of space for the reader to fill in meaning. I’m a songwriter and your poem reminds me very much of a song I wrote called “Save a Seat for Me.” It is about longing to understand what we can not, and about eternity. I would love it if you gave it a listen: http://wp.me/s3mOze-124

    • Thanks Rae! I don’t write poems very often, and when I do it’s usually because there’s something which I’m struggling to say but which words feel inadequate for. So I try to leave out as many words as possible, in the hope that the ones which are left will allow the meaning to shine through.

      I won’t explain the context for this poem since it involves a very special conversation with a very special person, but I think you’ve got it. 🙂

      I haven’t listened to your song yet, but I promise I will. 🙂
