A moment lights upon me like a snowflake on my cheek and melts in the heat of contact the second I know it’s there.
It seems that the happiest moments rush by me in flurries, both myriad and fleeting, and all that really lingers is like frozen tears upon my cheeks.
Time crawls to the moments of happiness and then speeds merrily away, ever teasing like the wind itself, a few roofs blown away, but gone in an instant too quick.
Yet if I could keep them all I must then be a snow queen with frozen heart and icy exterior, glowing by moonlight or glittering like crystal in the sun…
My empty embrace would be extended, reaching out for you, but too cold to take, as all things in stasis must be.
Vibrancy and warmth require perception and appreciation of life in constant motion. Above all things, I need to learn patience and happiness in the fleeting.
