“Dread is a sympathetic antipathy and an antipathetic sympathy.” Soren Kierkegaard

Those Moments

There are moments forever
in my throat where my heart resides,
moments touched by conversations
eavesdropped from my past,
a knife,
felt a fist,
the phone call,
that crash,
he'll be alright
the ambulance is here,
chills run and
my spine turns to ice.

“Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us.” Virginia Woolf

Those Moments

Those moments,
when thoughts flurry,
rushing in and through
like wild horses fast and loose
on the plain of choice all lathered
and snorting when all seems settled,
like floral table cloths set for dinner,
or open books by the window
waiting for translucent days like
almond blossom, perfect and
delicate, all soft and fine, now
overrun with tantalising thoughts 
to follow this way and that,
those moments, when life
offers rich turns of
unfathomable mystery.
