a single silver string

you watch it twirl
rolling the thread
between your shifting fingers
back and forth

freeing the fibers
shredding the strands
dulling the shine

back and forth
until all you have
is a pile of dust

and with just one breath
the silver specks scatter
dancing in the sunlight

    A lot to take away and reflect upon and, for me, that’s a hall mark of grat writing; really great work

  • Thank you for the kind words—I’m thrilled you can take something away from it.
