Fleeting/ One Single Impression


As I watch the sun slip
towards the horizon --
daylight’s finale wedged between
that which has gone by and
that which is to come --
the sun’s glow pierces
the here and now with bliss,
and I wonder
how it is that the now
is forever on the move,
ever fleeting, ever changing,
yet eternally in the present.
