NaPoWriMo 14

April 14, 2012

Technology:  I’d made a bit of a blunder.  I had two NaPoWriMo 10s which I’ve now corrected.  I thought I hadn’t missed a day.

Poem:  We had an incident with our eldest son who we thought had gone missing.  Fortunately it turned out he’d got a lift but we had a couple of anxious hours and had got the police involved.  Looking back on what happened it show how easily normality is suddenly shifted by external forces and how much on a knife edge safety is.  If life is a series of moments (and with my memory failing on a daily basis it seems to be so) then it’s amazing how long some of those moments can last.

blink and it’s gone

a series of blinks, snapshots
of colourful life
that totally immerse
mesmerising with their
momentary incandescence
but with a change of view
a change of priority
moved on and forgotten
this life, made up of moments
so many banal and forgettable
as the next is moved onto
and then a phone call to say
that you aren’t on the train
and no one has seen you
with the battery dead in your mobile
you are incommunicado
and then the moments stretch
and turn to anxious ages
