Breaking Moment

 

Lots of sharp edges
this morning. Smoked
glass with scratches.
Not an etched in design,
yet fetching attention
to strange patterns
seemingly without
meaning.

Jagged white fingers
reaching to grasp
a bit of darkness.
But, darkness recedes,
glances back to beckon,
inviting further
encroachment.

Slower than slow dance
done without music,
as ears lean forward
hoping to hear first note
that will shatter silence
waiting to be
broken.
