“I am soft sift in an hourglass–” Gerard Manley Hopkins

from “The Wreck of the Deutschland”

This single-lettered self

has been busy coning

on a contained glass plane

past sunsets that once seemed

much farther apart, It is the widening future

at the top,

funneling

into narrowing presents,

shining moments facet as they fall,

each catching the light and slowing

into the years of insects who cram

lifetimes between a single dawn and dusk.

Linda Armstrong

This was my poem for today. I don’t know whether I will make it all the way through the month, but it is fun right now. Check out the prompts and join in.
