quickening (or, last night's text)

"quick, quick"
the text read
"look at the sunset"

so "quick" up the stairs
and "quick" onto the deck
twas a wonder i didn't wreck
into a wall!

when i arrived
the mighty ball
covered by cloud
lent a subtle effect
hard to forget

i learned from that text
though "slow" fits
my flow
"quick, quick"
i sometimes need to be
and i oft need others
to quicken me!

for a moment
is only a moment

for only
a moment

".....just maybe it is these small silent moments which are the true story-making events of our lives."

*A big thank you to my friend, JA, for quickening me to such a beautiful moment.


  1. Our lives are made up with moments in time. I try to cherish each one of these. Terry, you were "quick" and experienced another special moment you can tuck in your inspirational memory diary of life.

  2. I love this, Aunt Terry! So glad you captured the moment and the memory.

  3. :)Thanks Christy, Harold and Kell.
