A Lightness – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“I can be jubilant one moment and pensive the next, and a cloud could go by and make that happen.” Bob Dylan

A Lightness

Just to savour rather than capture,
to look rather than touch,
holding in the heart of the mind
a whist of chameleon memory
coloured by fragments of moments,
new insights from old feelings,
like clouds, not one the same,
in an ever present paradox of sky,
just to hold without holding,
a lightness where thoughts are
free to please as they come and go.
