2010 November PAD- Day 9

PAD, Day 9… The prompt was to write a “slow down” or “never slow down” poem. I chose the former.

In Slow Motion

Time takes on a whole new perspective, when the pathology comes back positive.
It becomes segmented into its constituent days, hours, minutes,
each one special, miraculous, unrepeatable,
to be held onto greedily
until there are
no more
left.
