One Moon at a Time - Sept. 11, 2022

i don’t look back much

for what’s happening now

has replaced that

which has happened

every instant born

a whispering traveler

for a short time a moon

chased by another moon

we transfer to the next train

at the next stop

the followed one

never allowed

to look back or

whimper as it leaves

each one has its moment

in time why mourn

the one that just left?


you never know

who will be

your next companion

for just a little while
