Evening river

Swallows over head
as children play,

and,
cars pass
On the bridge
over
The River Wye.

Screams.

Water eddies
calming,
hypnotic
In the evening sun.

I wonder
How I can capture this moment
keep it for the bad
times,
the lonely
moments,
When it is cold
In the mid-winter,
Not remembering the possibility
of such
warmth
&
Peace.

Wanting to slow-down time,
constrict
it to a trickle
I can modulate.

Pause.

how
Magical
It would be – likely cheating;
manipulating the moment
Conjuring
When is good, when is bad,
When to revel,
When to indulge

Like Eden.
