Ephemeral Impressions

Life is in the moments

We seek to grasp and seize

Sometimes ecstatic

And buoyant

Others dark

And despondent

We con ourselves into thinking

We can cage these ephemeral

Moments and mould them

Into eternal impressions

The ravages of time

Teach us lasting lessons

The warmth of the sun

Shining bright

Or the despair of the

Dark endless night

Dance like the shadows

In life’s looking glass

Eventually nothing

Is eternal

They all have to pass
